This plant has been growing at the edge of my pond for about 5 years now. I call it my "Bad hair day" plant, because of it's unruly, curled leaves. The complete name on the plant tag is Blue Medusa Corkscrew Rush, Juncus inflexus 'Afro'. It also says that it is hardy to -30 degrees. I live in zone 5 and leave the plant in the pond with no special protection.
