Juncus vaseyi Engelm.
Vasey's rush
Juncus: the classical Latin name for the rush, possibly from jungere, "to join or bind," because the stems were used for binding
vaseyi: for either George Vasey, Jr. (in Juncus), a doctor & later botanist for US Dept. of Agriculture (1889), or his son George Richard Vasey (1853-?), who collected plants in California for the government in 1876 & 1880 and later settled in Washington state
