Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance'

Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance'
Common name variegated sedge
Family cyperaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Size 1-2'
Light sun-shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Makes a clump of gracefully arching foliage, mid-green edged in white, wider around than it is tall. It's been a troublefree citizen of our garden, in two partly shaded locations. Very nice.

As nice in early winter as in summer

Eventually, hard freezes do in the foliage. The new growth, shooting up in early April, is rather interesting

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
