Carex

Search Carex
A large genus of more than 1500 species of grass-like plants, commonly known as sedges. At least 70 species are native to New Zealand. Their foliage is grass-like and they are clump or tussock forming, softening the edges in a landscape design like few other plants can do. They grow naturally and are bred in a wide range of colours, and can therefore compliment any planting scheme. Some are tall, some are short, some are curly, some are drooping and some are stiff. There is a Carex for every effect you could wish to create.

Picture of Carex Frosted Curls

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

NZ Native Grass. This is a graceful little grass or tussock with fine, light silver green needles of foliage that curl over at the top. Looks its best when planted in large groups or drifts. Easy to grow in sun or part shade in average soil. Evergreen.

If your clump of Carex becomes a little scruffy give it a new 'do' by cutting off the top growth - you can be quite severe - and it will rapidly re grow with renewed vigour.
