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)

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week - Not only do we love Liatris 'Kobold', but it's coveted by florists, butterflies & bees for itsl showy, vibrant hued flowers. ‘Kobold’ means “goblin”—and big-headed it is. This compact cultivar has a smaller stature than others of its species, and its erect stems rise solidly from the earth. Grassy foliage plays host to an outstanding bristle of rosy lilac blooms. A vibrant garden guest, contrast ‘Kobold’ against Phlomis fruticosa’s yellow blooms and harmonize with the pinkish panicles of Calamagrostis brachytricha.
