Plant Features

Amazon Mist is a compact ornamental carex grass that produces slender leaves are bluish-green on the top side and silvery white on the underside, each one twisting upon itself at the tips which makes the plant look somewhat "misty", hence the name. Commonly called sedge, they can be used as accents, groundcovers, landscaping, and containers. Tiny yellow flowers rise on wispy stems in midsummer. Very eye-catching in containers or planted along a retaining wall and allowing the "fountain" to overflow!

Can't wait til it is full size!

Grow Joy has the best shipping methods! The plants arrived on time and looking healthy. I did not get the plants in the ground until the 3rd day, but they are thriving.

Love this grass... the rabbits do too

This is a unique and lovely grass and I just planted three in one of my front yard garden beds (2 days ago). Today I see a rabbit chomping on one and notice the other two are just about mowed down. I already dealt with rabbits ruining my beds last year so I read lots of information and began planting things they shouldn’t eat. And everything was going well till these grasses were put in. So ... note to anyone who deals with rabbits. I will have to put these in planters and hope they recover. Aside from that the grasses came in perfect condition. Very healthy with good growth and packaged well.

Very happy repeat customer

This is my 4th or 5th year ordering from GrowJoy and they have exceeded my expectations once again with the delivery of my Amazon Mist Carex. Even with the harsh past winter my plants arrived healthy and carefully packaged. I wish all online nurseries were this exceptional!
