Carex/Bowles' Golden Sedge

Carex/Bowles' Golden Sedge
perennial grass
Height:12"
Light:Full Sun-Part Shade
Zone: 5-9

Glowing yellow leaves have a pencil-line edging of green, forming an
upright grassy looking clump. Greenish flower appear briefly in late spring.
This is a favorite plant of garden designers, especially for moist to wet
sites in full sun to part shade. This takes well to growing in containers
set into a water feature. Best in cool summer regions. Clumps may be
divided in early spring as growth begins. Deciduous in winter. One of the
most colourful Sedges, and also among the hardiest. Originally
by E.A. Bowles growing wild in Norfolk, UK.
