The citrus lemon-yellow blades edged in green add a refreshing zest even in the winter garden. Neat habit is perfect for container planting. Colorful year-round, the flowing arching mounds of Carex Eversheen is perfectly suited for shade, but can handle some sun in cooler climates. A pleasing addition to any spot as it bends and sways with the warm summer breezes. A nice edger.

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.

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.
