Carex morrowii ‘Irish Green’ | Sedge

Description

This sedge forms large clumps of fresh green leaves with brown flower panicles appearing in de flowering season. Because this grass is evergreen it brightens up your garden in the winter. This effect can be increased by planting it in groups.

To get a fresh appearance of the plant in the spring, it might be necessary to give the plant a spring pruning. By removing the brown and dry leaves here and there and cutting back the brown tips, you help the plant to a faster new growth.
