''Juncus tenuis'', the slender rush, is a clump-forming, round-stemmed perennial in the Juncaceae . Slender rush grows to be between 15 and 60 cm tall. Generally considered a weed, it is rarely sold by retailers as a household container plant. Where it is introduced, it is colloquially called path rush, field rush, slender yard rush, poverty rush or wiregrass.

The leaves of the plant all come from the base and are not nearly as tall as the stems. The stems are partly covered by sheaths,.. more
