A tough ground cover sedge

A Japanese import, the Carex morrowii species is grown in our garden for its three main qualities (*):

  • evergreen foliage even in winter,
  • resistance to the dry shade of trees,
  • its effectiveness as a ground cover without being invasive.

Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance' has attractive shiny green and creamy white variegated foliage. This rhizomatous sedge is an effectively tough ground cover for shady areas.

Height: 35 cm. Planting distance: 50 cm. Grow in the sun (not too hot) or in partial shade in ordinary soil. Resists temporary drought. Hardy.

Goes well with Alchemilla mollis. Very attractive in pots on a shady patio.

(*) and not the least.
