For discerning landscapes! Orange New Zealand Sedge (Carex testacea) isn’t a mainstream garden plant yet. But discerning designers have been using this subtle (and not so subtle, at the same time) beauty in designs for a while now. Unless you use a designer for your own yard, though, you may not have heard of this little gem, or been sold on her finer points.We say this because it is sometimes hard to sell gardeners on bronze-colored grass. To the untrained eye bronze color makes a grass look dormant. Look a little closer.Orange New Zealand Sedge forms a magnificently elegant arching mound of bronze-green finely textured leaves that looks fantastic when planted in groups of threes and fives or when used as the centerpiece of a large container. It spills over the edges of pots and walls like liquid gold.Then in the fall when the weather gets chilly, it turns an electric orange that sends shockwaves through the garden. Sedge loves the wet spots. Use it beside fountains or ponds, in low wetlands, in that trouble spot that never seems to totally dry out in your yard. Make a rain garden or a drainage ditch sing with motion and color. It thrives in sun or shade, so plant it where you need it. You don’t need a discerning designer eye to have a garden that looks like you do. Order your Orange New Zealand Sedge from us today and make them wonder.* Very hardy grass* Urban gardens* Tolerates wet soil and part shade* Adaptable* Great fall color* Container perfect* Rain gardens and wetlands.
