(Frosted Curls Sedge, New Zealand Hair Sedge)

Though it much resembles an ornamental grass, it comes from a different family all together, and like many of its fellow sedges, is more versatile than grasses, being tolerant of both full sun and partial sun and moist to almost-wet soils, and not attractive to deer. The tiny...

(Winged Sedge)

Tufted Sedge Grass is an easy to grow clumping sedge grass with graceful, arching foliage. Its ability to grow in wet conditions makes it an excellent addition to a poorly drained site. Although it displays small blue flowers for a short period of time, it is mostly grown for its foliage as an accent to a mixed border or edging plant. Grows best in partial sun to shade with moist, acidic soil, but will adapt to normal soil conditions and even grows in shallow water as well as dry conditions.
