Carex dolichostachya ‘Kaga-nishiki’


Gold Fountains Sedge

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.090.100


This Japanese selection is a low, clump-forming sedge, the handsome slender green leaves brightly edged in golden yellow. Excellent as an edging plant in moist shady areas, perhaps as a companion to Hostas or ferns. Also nice in mixed containers. Plants are sturdy and long-lived, remaining evergreen in mild winter regions. Clumps may be divided in spring, but each division should be fairly large in size for best results. In cool summer regions this will tolerate full sun with plenty of moisture.
