Do you crave year-round motion and energy for your garden this year? Nothing does that as well as grasses and sedges! They are super easy to care for, they fit into just about any garden style, and now... there are so many colors and forms to choose from!

One of the very best is Evercolor® Everlime Carex (Carex oshimensis 'Everlime'). Once you try it you will agree that it is such a great and adaptable plant. It stands out from other Carex with eye-catching, spring-green blades with a lime-green edge.

From early spring until autumn's frost, you'll enjoy bright-hued blades of color swaying in the breeze! Summer brings brown, spiky seed-heads for added interest and motion in the wind. Easy-care perennials, Carex are low-growing focal points and low maintenance interest for a wide variety of landscape applications.

Tolerating wet to soggy soil conditions is what really sets these apart from other ornamental grasses. They add an amazing designer touch to your landscape!

How to Use EverColor® Everlime Variegated Sedge Grass In The Landscape

Everlime Variegated Sedge makes a magnificent groundcover or try it in your favorite container as both a 'thriller' and a 'spiller'! It will bring light and texture to any garden combo! The distinctive green foliage with lime margins really sets off nearly every other color and plant!

Everlime can also stabilize and beautify that hard-to-maintain slope. Looking absolutely stunning planted en masse, as ground cover, or in long winding rows along your garden beds and bodies of water.

It forms a neat and easily controlled mound that looks fantastic in a row along the edge of a perennial bed or filling in large beds under trees. High style and high impact, the killer green and tidy clump formation lend themselves to formal garden styles. While the soft texture and lively colors work just as well in informal gardens as well!

Water features become the main attraction with the vibrant lime-green addition of soothing texture and motion that only ornamental grasses bring to the garden.

#ProPlantTips For Care

EverColor® Everlime Variegated Sedge Grass does its very best in part shade conditions, a rarity among ornamental grasses, but Everlime can take sun like a champ too! If you want easy to grow and low-maintenance, then you can't beat Everlime.

Preferring moist, well-drained soils, Sedge is not particular on where it grows. However, Carex really shines in soggy, swampy environments just as well as average conditions.

Hardy in growing zones 5 through 9, Sedge is deer-resistant once established and very low maintenance.

Evercolor® Everlime keeps its shape and color all year and shouldn't need to be pruned, however you can crop back the plant in early spring if needed to remove last year's growth.

Whether your garden style is rustic or formal, Evercolor® Everlime Variegated Sedge Grass will brighten it all year! Get the bold color you crave by ordering from Nature Hills Nursery today!
