Question for Bob Fenner... Eleocharis use... immersed
I've been looking to purchase some Eleocharis acicularis for my

expensive like $300 for 18'x48'),
but from American wholesale nurseries they say it can grow up to 12

grows slow, and will possibly die if completely submerged.
<Spikebrush is an annual for the most part...>
Are there different varieties of this plant and if so how are you
supposed to name the different varieties?
<Mmm, for the one species, more like individual "results"
given different conditions>
