Plant of the Week 06/12/2020
Everest Variegated Sedge Carex oshimensis Zone 5-9
This evergreen not only adds beautiful texture to your garden but the variegated (green and white) blades of grass add a beautiful contrast. A mounding grass that produces small hairy seed pods in the summer months.
Plant in full shade to part sun. Looks great in rock gardens, near water features and in mass planting. A moderate grower that can reach 15" tall and 24" wide. Easy to care for with year round interest. Needs well drained, evenly moist soil for best results. Remove faded foliage and prune lightly in early spring.
