Baumea Articulata "Jointed Rush" Seeds
Baumea articulata, commonly known as jointed rush, is a sedge in the Cyperaceae family that is native to Western Australia.
The grass-like sedge is rhizomatous and perennial, it typically grows to a height of 1 to 2.6 metres (3.3 to 8.5 ft). It blooms between September and December producing red-brown flowers on pendulous inflorescences.
It is commonly found around swamps and on the margins of lakes along coastal areas in the Mid West, Wheatbelt, Peel, South West, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance where it grows in damp black sandy soils.
Baumea articulata is excellent for water features & is a great habitat plant for nesting bird life. It grows in water to 1m deep & likes either full sun or semi-shade. This sedge typically flowers and fruits in summer.
In general, wetland sedges and rushes can be propagated using the bog method, where the pot containing the seeds is placed into a saucer of water until germination occurs. This results in moisture reaching the seeds by capillary action and ensures that the seeds do not dry out.
