Plant Features

Carex Morrowii Variegata commonly called Variegated Japanese Sedge, has lustrous green and creamy white striped blades. This ornamental grass adds silvery accents in shaded areas as a border or groundcover plant, and in pots and rock gardens. The clumping mounds frame water gardens beautifully. This variegated, low-maintenance ornamental grass thrives in moist, rich, well-drained soil in partial to full shade. Too much sun will scorch blades, causing them to turn an unattractive yellow.
