Carex morrowii 'Silver Sceptre' (Cyperaceae)
Variegated Japanese Sedge
Tough as nails, this evergreen sedge is similar to C. morrowii 'Aureo-Variegata' except the variegation is reversed. Narrow grassy leaves have green centers edged in creamy yellow. Growing 8-12" in moist, lightly shaded areas, this Carex is excellent for its soft, billowy texture and the ease with which it combines with other plants. Spreads by rhizomes to form a dense carpet
