The mid-green leaves of this decorative sedge are lined with white, and this makes it an eye-catching addition to both patio pots and front of border positions. Forming a low (around 10cm high) mound, the grass-like foliage is topped with taller stems bearing inconspicuous clusters of brown flowers in summer.
- Garden care: Keep well watered, particularly during the warmer months, and protect plants from frost. In colder regions, it's best kept in a pot so it can be moved to a sheltered spot during the winter.
