Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance' (Cyperaceae)
(CARE-eks more-ROW-ee-eye)
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 warmer zones. Foliage has a wider leaf and more prominent creamy-white margins than the commonly available Carex morrowii 'Variegata'. Stoloniferous habit, spreading 2-3'. Cut foliage back in early spring and enjoy the outstanding color of new growth.
