Carex Sedge Grass is a great option for groundcover and colour for gardens in many locations, fitting in nicely in shaded areas under trees or as part of a mixed shrub border. Carex ‘Prairie Fire’ is another splendid addition to your garden with its autumn foliage appearing a vibrant, fiery orange. During the Summer months spike clusters of tiny brown flowers appear above the narrow, arching foliage to provide some variety to the colour and blend nicely with other plants and shrubs in your arrangement.

Plant in moist, well-drained soil and keep in full or partial sun. Grows well in moist areas but be wary of overwatering or excessive wet soil during the Winter months to avoid frost damage. Can tolerate some drier soils once properly established.

Please Note: When purchasing plants please consider that each live item is unique and may therefore differ from the images shown, which are for illustration purposes only.  Ongoing plant maintenance within our nursery is essential, meaning some lines are pruned back at certain times of the year to encourage new growth.
