Wide, strappy leaves measuring 1/4 to 1/2 inch across, this carex makes a bold statement in the shade garden. The leaves are dark green with bright white variegated edges. Small, cream, bottlebrush-like flowers are produced in mid-spring but are rather insignificant to the plant’s ornamental value. Unlike many other sedges, this variety grows vigorously in a variety of conditions, from nearly full sun to shade in average to moist soil.
