Carex oshimensis 'Everillo' PP21002


Common Name: Japanese Sedge, Ornamental Grass

This sport of 'Evergold' has a similar performance to its parent but with a brilliant, solid gold leaf color. Long, thin arching leaf blades are chartreuse green toward the crown, but turn golden yellow as they are exposed to UV light. Short tan inflorescence appears just above the foliage.

Like 'Evergold', this low-growing evergreen sedge can be used in rock gardens or as spillers in containers. For best golden color, plant in a location with morning sun. In deep shade, foliage remains chartreuse. Plant in moist soils. From Pat Fitzgerald.
