How to Use EverColor® Everest™ Variegated Sedge Grass in the Landscape

This stunning grass is adored by landscapers as an impeccable and reliable mass planting with a lot of pizzazz. Plant them eight inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Use this same spacing to create a groundcover fill on slopes. They'll help control erosion and look cute, too.

EverColor Everest Carex is perfect for those areas around your yard that can be difficult to plant. It thrives in partial shade, giving those shady places a pop of color and winter interest.

Include them with broad-leaved Hosta and fine-textured Astilbe. Repeat them along a woodland garden path. Don't just be surprised if their winsome good looks call fairies to mind!

Even if you never actually see a Sprite or Pixie; their tiny brown blooms do support moths and butterflies. Pop a row of them on the shady side of your Butterfly Garden.

Tuck them into oversized outdoor containers as a marvelous "Spiller" around the edge to soften the look. Partner with one of our special Hydrangea bushes as a "Thriller", and you'll have an elegant design that works for many years with afternoon shade.

Ornamental Sedges make easy-care and reliable foliage plants. This unique variety adds a race striped flair to your planting designs.

In ambitious, earth moving projects like bermed Rain Gardens, use multiple EverColor® Everest™ Variegated Sedge Grass to provide motion and color in shaded areas. Protect our precious groundwater from potentially polluted runoff from roofs and streets.

Even if the only ambition you have is to decorate the low-lying area around your rain gutter, this darling plant is up for the challenge. Enjoy the tufty fountains created by these personable perennials.

#ProPlantTips for Care

In the hottest areas, please take care that they don't get too much sun. Moist, well-drained soil is best for them to shine; so provide them with consistent water.

Make sure to cut back all the foliage in the late winter or early spring each year. You'll make way for fresh new leaves to emerge from the roots each spring!

Otherwise, these petite powerhouses are quite easy-care. If you like to have a tidy space, gently rake them to clear fallen leaves.

Enjoy their sweetly Zen look and they'll perform faithfully for you! Place your order for EverColor Everest Variegated Sedge Grass today.
