Quick Overview:

?Silver Sceptre? is a Japanese grass sedge cultivar that is ornamentally grown in shade areas for its narrow, variegated foliage. It typically grows in a dense, arching, grass-like clump to 12? tall. Green leaf blades are variegated with white edges. Greenish-brown flower spikes appear on triangular stems in mid-spring. This sedge is evergreen in the deep South, maintaining good foliage in both summer and winter.

Description

Groupings of 3-5 make a stunning accent planted against other shade-loving perennials. Part sun to full shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soil, but is quite drought tolerant once established. Cut foliage to the ground in early spring before new growth occurs. Good in containers, or as a slowly spreading groundcover.
