Carex oshimensis ‘Evergold’
Evergreen, Ground covers, Ornamental grasses and grasslike plants, Perennials
Large group of grasslike, clumping plants found worldwide and grown for foliage effect in borders, rock gardens, containers, and water gardens (flowers are generally insignificant); some are used as lawn substitutes, as large-scale groundcovers, or for erosion control. Long, narrow evergreen leaves are often striped or oddly colored. Specialists offer many varieties. Although characteristically found in damp soils, many sedges will grow under relatively dry conditions in cultivation. Many are short-lived in gardens so are used as annuals.Carex oshimensis ‘Evergold’
