A diverse genus comprised of nearly 1000 species, most Carex originate in the moist habitats of temperate climates. Easily grown, our winning selections produce a variety of different colored leaves that promise to soften those sharp edges in your garden.
Endemic to Europe and Asia, Grassland Sedge’s deep green and lustrous, thin evergreen blades nimbly arch out from a clumping base, yielding inconspicuous brownish blooms held by lax wiry stems. Once established, the fast growing and versatile Carex divulsa can handle an array of situations: some drought, boggy areas, tree roots, sun or shade, and foot traffic, including the 4-legged kind. However, regular watering and a trim every 6 months will ensure the most vigorous growth. You can space it closely and mow for a turf-like effect, plant multiples as a luxurious ground cover in a small or large area or create an intriguing vignette with Arctostaphylos ‘Radiant’ and Festuca ‘Superba’.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 7.
