Carex oshimensis 'Evergold' (Cyperaceae)
Variegated Japanese Sedge
A medium-sized sedge from Japan, this cultivar has green-edged leaves with a creamy-yellow central stripe. Clumps of long narrow blades have a weeping habit, making 'Evergold' visually elegant and relaxing. The bright variegation lights up the woodland garden. Forms neatly rounded clumps, 1' tall with a 2' spread; cute little brown bottlebrush blooms in early spring. Perfect for edging shady paths, scattered through beds where spring ephemerals come and go, or in a shaded container.
