CAREX oshimensis 'Supergold'
Evergold Sedge, Japanese Sedge, Oshima Sedge
Japanese sedge is an evergreen perennial grown for its attractive, arching, grass-like leaves. The cultivar 'Supergold' has creamy yellow foliage with dark green margins. Panicles of brown flowers appear in late spring.
'Supergold' performs best in partial shade and moist, well-drained, fertile soils. Japanese sedges falter in soggy, waterlogged soils, unlike most other sedge species. This deer-resistant plant works well in the woodland border, as a groundcover, or in containers. Its showy leaves brighten dark spots in the garden. Though evergreen, Japanese sedge should be sheared to the ground in late winter to keep its neat appearance.
