Grass Carex siderosticha 'Variegata'
Wide green leaves with distinct white stripes form clumps that spread slowly. Although this is late to emerge in the spring, it makes a wonderful edger for pathways or ground cover. Wheat bloom appears between May and June.
Carex, the most popular genus in the sedge family, is a huge group of more than 1,000 species. Most are clump formers, tend to be compact, and many do very well in shady conditions. They have seen a real revival as “no-mow” alternatives to turf and are excellent, tough perennials.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
