Wild JUNCUS Growing

Natural juncus, spiny rush, is indigenous to Southern California and northern Mexico, and it grows wild for the picking if you know where to look for juncus and have permission to harvest juncas.

In this photo, taken near the San Jose de La Zorra Indian community valley in Baja California, Mexico, wild juncus is growing on both sides of a natural stream as an Indian horse eats and drinks from the water.

The tall grass-like plants in the foreground, and all along the river edge are wild juncus plants juncos used by Native American California Indians, including the Kumeyaay Indians, for their traditional juncus basketweaving coiled baskets.

Winter 2004 spring 2005 was record rainfall in San Diego County one of the wettest on record.
