Red Hook Sedge

Uncinia

Uncinia rubra full sun  partial shade

This toasty-hued New Zealand native is highly treasured for narrow, rich mahogany blades arching up and out from its base to forge a burnished tuft warmed by reddened accents. Tiny, Bulrush-like, hooked flowers are elevated above the tidy, low growing evergreen clump that flourishes in cool moist places but sulks in excessive heat.

Massed at water’s edge or nestled in a cobalt blue container, Uncinia rubra strikes a stunning pose with Bergenia ‘Bressingham Ruby’s textural leaves or the rounded foliage of Lysimachia ‘Aurea’ as a golden counterpoint.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 12"–15" high x 15" wide. Zone 7/8.

Uncinia rubra (G-0474)

Our favorite plant this week: What's not to love about this adorable Primula? Steeped in charm and easily grown, this hard-to-find old-fashioned Primrose promises to please with nearly evergreen foliage and a blooming season, extending from spring to fall. A plentiful showing of rose-like buds and splendid lilac-pink double flowers adorn broad textured spring green foliage that forms a generous long-lived clump. Bright shade, well-drained soil and above average moisture will ensure its success.
