CAREX morrowii 'Silver Scepter'
Japanese Sedge, Morrow's Sedge, Silver Scepter Sedge
Silver scepter sedge is an evergreen, herbaceous perennial that originates from Japan. This tidy and attractive shade-loving plant forms grassy, mop-like clumps of medium green foliage edged with silvery white. Hardy and vigorous, it mixes well with other perennials for shade and is easy to grow if provided with organic-rich, evenly moist soil. Enjoy it massed as a groundcover or planted along the edge of a shaded border. Though evergreen, it is best to shear back plants in late winter to allow for a flush of clean fresh growth.
