Tough and Versatile
A tropical look with glossy green upright foliage cascades over itself for a waterfall-like appearance. Slender blades twist at tips like curling ribbon. A pleasing accent or plant in masses for a lovely effect. Clumps will reach up to 2’ across. The slender blades will bend and sway with warm summer breezes. Sedge favors shade but will tolerate morning sun or filtered sun throughout the day. Carex Ribbon Falls™ tends to be evergreen in warm zones.

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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
