The Evercolor® series of sedge grass is known for its quality selection, so the arrival of the Evercolor Everillo Carex (Carex oshimensis 'Everillo') should excite those familiar with the brand. Those that have not heard much about Evercolor should read on to understand what the big deal is!

This spectacular sedge grass is new to the game, but it sure does make a loud entrance! This evergreen ground cover sports neon lime green foliage which ark wide around its epicenter, giving a burst of color to any garden lucky to have some.

As the grass ages, it slowly turns more and more golden which adds to its seasons of interest. It's hard for words to do this transformation justice, so we at Nature Hills highly recommend you pick one up and see for yourself!

One way to affect your plant's appearance is to regulate the amount of sunlight it receives through the seasons. More direct sunlight exposure tends to mean your sedge will start to show off its amber hues much sooner.

The Evercolor Everillo Carex boasts a mounding growth habit, which means the growth is largely centered around the middle of the sedge. As the grass grows longer it will begin to arch out from its core and add dimension and texture to your garden space.

Nature Hills' in-house horticulturists can attest to the quality of this bold new sedge grass. Order your own Evercolor Everillo Carex for your garden projects today!

How to Use Evercolor® Everillo Carex in the Landscape

Due to its compact growth and root structure, the Evercolor Everillo Carex can grow either free range in the garden or fit in different types of containers! The unique growth of this sedge makes it a perfect fit for window box planters too!

If used in planters, several of them can be placed spread through a balcony or porch border for a bright accenting plant that will pleasantly add ambiance to the space.

Several of these sedge plants in sequence bring a vivid pop of color to borders. Use them as the edge of a flower bed for a green border marker, or align them with a walkway to bring attention to the start of a garden bed!

Need something to round out the empty patches in your rock garden? The wide spread of this sedge grass's foliage makes it an excellent choice for a groundcover filler.

No matter where you plant this Carex it is important to remember that this grass is a surefire way to spice up your garden in dreary winter months. Plant this grass according to what parts of your growing space will need that extra "oomph" to cheer you up in the dead of winter.

#ProPlantTips for Care

The Evercolor Everillo Carex is going to be mighty thirsty when you first transplant this bright grass. Be sure to water regularly while it's getting established, then you should be able to tone it down to a weekly watering session.

This sedge prefers partial shade to full shade and it can be susceptible to sun damage if left in full sun for long periods of time. If you start to notice signs of damage caused by excessive sun exposure you should consider replanting to more shady spots in your growing area.

The Evercolor Everillo Carex tends to appreciate water more than your average grass, so in an effort to preemptively assist in healthy growth you need to pick the right soil. Moist, well drained soils are the best for a healthy evergreen grass such as this.

This sedge grass should hardly ever require pruning. If pruning is absolutely necessary try to wait until frost season is over to ensure the safety of your plant's vulnerable grow spots, but bear in mind that this grass takes a lot of time to regrow anything that was previously pruned.

This particular grass is fairly deer and pest resistant, but can still be prone to certain fungal problems. Be sure your growing area is well circulated to prevent these issues from occurring.

The Evercolor Everillo Carex is a hardy and capable grass that will give your garden reliable color year round. This popular grass is sure to sell out soon, so order your own from our expert growers today!
