Carex dolichostachya 'Gold Fountains' (Cyperaceae)
(CARE-eks dol-e-ko-STAK-ee-ah)
Gold Fountains Sedge

This elegant Japanese Carex graces the woodland garden with a 1-2' mound of slender, emerald-green, grassy leaves bordered in gold. The effect is a fine shimmering texture -- great along a path. Loves fertile organic soils; full sun is fine with adequate moisture. Plants are evergreen through zone 6.
