Quick Overview:

Native to woodland slopes and along streams in Southern China and Vietnam, this clumping sedge is composed of wide green leaves, topped, starting in mid-July and again in late September with 1′ tall spikes of exquisite pink-plumed flowers. Average to slightly moist soils are best. Not only do humans enjoy this sedge, but honeybees have declared it a favorite as well.
