This grass is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its foliage in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose it all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moisture-retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Originating from swamps and damp meadows in North America, this semi-evergreen sedge will thrive in moisture-retentive soil - and therefore makes a handsome addition to bog gardens or pond margins. The slender foliage forms in palm-like spays, creating a slowly spreading mound, which in summer is topped with brownish flowerheads.

  • Garden care: Comb through the plant in late winter to remove any dead foliage.
