WHY PLANT IT: The new growth emerges in spring in golden tips followed by dark seed heads on bright green stems. The clump form stays in place and will not sow itself.
WHERE: Thrives in full sun to light shade with regular watering. Grows best in rich mosit soil but will tolerate wet locations. Cut to the ground in late autumn when the foliage is fading.
ACTUAL SIZE: This sedge spreads to 3 feet by 3 feet at full growth.
