Juncus articulatus B. S. Walters

Moist ground, sandy, clayey, and peaty shores, streams and springy places; frequent in areas of calcareous soils.

The stems of this common, even somewhat weedy species are often decumbent at base, and vegetative shoots may be short-creeping, acting as stolons, especially later in summer.
