Carex ciliatomarginata ‘Shima-nishiki’


Island Brocade Sedge

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 8.090.580


Broad-leaved Sedge is one of the most useful edging plants for shady gardens. This Japanese selection forms a low clump of wide, grassy-looking green leaves, brightly edged in golden yellow. The appearance is almost like a dwarf Hosta. Versatile in the garden, also excellent in mixed containers. Plants prefer a soil that remains evenly moist. Clumps may be divided in early spring just as the growth shoots begin to appear. Foliage dies back over the winter. Formerly listed as a selection of Carex siderosticha.
