Lori, I am in southern new jersey, my spiked rush has not come up yet either. My zebra rush is growing like crazy, but no sign of spike rush yet. My pond did freeze over completly, so maybe that is why. sue
Jean that is a GREAT site - wonderful prices on plants!
I have a Pickerel Rush (I know it's not the same...) and I thought I had lost it from a bad cold snap we got in December. But it's finally putting on some new growth, and I'm hoping I'll get to see the flowers are this year - we apparently moved in too late last summer to catch it in bloom. (I hope it's blue. I hope it's blue, I hope it's blue. Do ya'll think that'll make it blue???? Sure hope so.)
