Tolerates More Sun
A Sedge that tolerates more sun! This graceful ornamental grass features wispy, arching mint-green foliage with silvery undersides. The super fine texture swirls with the slightest breeze. Commonly called New Zealand Hair Sedge, we affectionately nicknamed this cascading fountain of shimmering blades Cousin It from the Addams Family. The rounded tussocks of Carex Amazon Mist are stunning in groups or in a favorite container where the draping mounded foliage can be appreciated. Movement and motion in a garden are treasured attributes and the misty slender blades sway in subtle hues to create a soothing atmosphere. Foliage may remain evergreen in warmer zones.

Carex General Information

Carex is a huge genus of more than 1,500 species of perennials with triangular, grass-like stems. Flowerheads develop on panicles of short spikes. Suited to many sites, Sedge will tolerate wet and/or shade well. Excellent in foreground or as an edger. Spreads slowly. Grass-like, colorful foliage is often brightly hued or variegated. Ornamental Grasses and Sedges are restricted from Idaho and Oregon. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Carex Plant Care

Sedge prefers a moist, well-drained soil with part shade. Very easy to maintain, Carex requires little if any feeding and in early spring, cut back by 1/3 or simply tease out dead blades to spruce up appearance. Division is best done in the spring.
