Quick Overview:

Sedges are grass-like plants, mostly preferring sites with moist, rich soil. This selection from the Evercolor® series forms a low cascading clump of leathery leaves with a distinctive green central stripe and orange margins from early fall to late winter, fading to a more cream variegation from spring to summer. Brownish flowers are insignificant. A choice plant for edging, or in the rock garden. This is a well-behaved plant. If the tips of the leaves get wind-burn over the winter, they may be trimmed with scissors in the spring. Clumps may be divided in early spring. Tolerates dry shade with occasional watering.

Description

Easily grown in medium moist soil in part shade. Foliage color richer in shade than in sun. Tends to languish in full shade. Thrives in moist soil, but also does well in average garden soil. Soil must not be allowed to dry out, however. Cut back to the ground in late winter when foliage needs rejuvenating. May benefit from a winter mulch.
