Comments: Big Twister low growing rush sports very unusually thick, twisted, glossy dark green, coiling foliage. Cut back the old stems in early winter so new, healthy ones will come out in spring. Growns in wet, marshy soils. Can be grown in a water garden where the crown is covered with 1-6 inches of water.
