Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance' (Cyperaceae)
Variegated Japanese Sedge
We are in love with this Carex! 'Ice Dance' thrives in dry shade or in moist woodland sites, and is fully evergreen in zone 4b and south. Foliage has a wider leaf and more prominent creamy-white margins than the commonly available Carex morrowii 'Variegata'. Mounding plants top out at 1-1.5' with a spread of 2-3'. 'Ice Dance' is mildly stoloniferous, but not invasive. Brownish springtime flowers are subtle. Cut foliage back in early spring and enjoy the outstanding color of new growth.
