Effective Erosion Control
Add a splash of color with this compact, clump-forming variegated Sedge. Softer yellow foliage blades are bordered by deep forest green. Evergreen in warmer zones, Carex spreads slowly by rhizomes and will anchor a slope for effective erosion control. Carex oshimensis are vigorous but well-behaved growers and maintain their color well. So versatile, these colorful Japanese Sedges are lovely as a bold accent, a spiller in a favorite container or planted in mass as a long-lived ground cover – a great alternative to English Ivy or Pachysandra. Perfectly suited for shade but can handle some sun in cooler climates. The striking variegation of Carex Everoro will intensify with some morning sun exposure.

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.
