    An impressive addition to pots and gravel gardens, this handsome sedge forms a dense, arching mound of orange-green foliage, which in summer is topped with flowerspikes that become taller as the season progresses. The foliage of Carex 'Prairie Fire' is the real star however, and as it's evergreen, it's invaluable for adding warmth and colour to the garden during the winter months.

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