Carex testacea
“Orange New Zealand Sedge”
Carex testacea “Orange New Zealand Sedge”

My nursery sample pot of this grass is so popular, I could have sold it 1,000 times! The finely textured, glossy leaves begin life as olive green & age to a distinct orange-red as it matures. The elegant, arching, mounding form, 30” tall & wide, makes it a beautiful accent. Ideal for spilling over rocks, massing in borders & stunning in an elevated container (at least 14” diameter). Carex testacea prefers soil that is not too dry & well-drained soil. Best color in full sun.
