Taller than most Sedges, the cascading slender blades of this moisture-loving grass gently sway with a summer breeze as it catches its arching, vase-shaped foliage. Bright yellow-green foliage thinly margined in green brightens a shady spot. Stunning around or in the shallow water of a pond or stream.

The luminous golden blades of Carex Bowles Golden draws attention for notable impact and pleasing contrast. Adapts to most any site with sufficient moisture. Semi-evergreen.

Carex General Information

Carex is a huge genus of more than 1,500 species of perennials with triangular, grass-like stems. On mature plants, tiny brown seedheads may 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. Supplemental watering may be necessary for top performance. 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.
