Small Cape Rush is a striking accent plant with upright, arching, thin, reed-like, evergreen clumping stems. Dark brown flowers in narrow spikes contrast nicely with the dark green stems. The stems are more slender and often lighter green in color at maturity than C. elephantinum. C. tectorum is more narrow at the base and requires good drainage.
