Typically cold hardy and fond of heavy moisture, sedge plants are a wonderful addition to many yards or gardens. Evercolor has developed a reputation for the quality of sedge grasses from their neck of the woods, and this glossy wonder is no exception.

The Evercolor® Eversheen Carex (carex oshimensis 'eversheen') is a variety of sedge from Evercolor that is sure to live up to their typical quality standards. This sedge, in particular, hails from Japanese heritage, lending it additional cold hardiness.

This plant's foliage consists of long, arcing blades of grass-like stems with deep green margins and a lime yellow center. This particular sedge gets its name "Eversheen" from its uniquely glossy appearance which is a sight to behold as it waves in the wind.

The striped foliage of the Evercolor Eversheen Carex is sure to be an attractive contribution to your garden! This eye-catching sedge stays shiny and vibrant all season long.

The graceful arch of the sedge's foliage at mature length are a real eye catcher throughout the year. When the wind blows this plant's potential really begins to shine (literally!) as the sun catches its glossy foliage and dazzles all who are lucky enough to witness it.

This plant is particularly self-sufficient, able to get by with just the right amount of water and very little trimming. Keep this plant well watered until it takes to its new home, then sit back and enjoy the view as it grows and shimmers in the summer breeze.

The Evercolor Eversheen Carex is just waiting to be planted in your yard or growing space. Learn more about this remarkable plant and order your own here at Nature Hills Nursery!

How to Use Evercolor® Eversheen Carex in the Landscape

Several Evercolor Eversheen Carex plants can be used in succession to make for an interesting border to paths or existing beds. Use this sedge's stunning qualities to their full potential and plant is somewhere it can be admired by all.

The naturally compact growth pattern of this sedge makes it fit well in containers without harming its growth potential. This plant works well as accenting to entry borders or scattered around a porch to draw attention all season.

The hardiness of the Evercolor Eversheen Carex makes it suitable to accent your typical rock garden. Cottage gardens can also benefit from a variegated ground cover to provide a backdrop to the various flowering perennials and shrubs.

Trees dimming your garden and holding back its bright potential? This sedge can thrive in shade, making it a great way to brighten the shady spots in your growing space.

Use this sedge to add more texture to your garden. The Evercolor Eversheen Carex grows lower than your typical perennial or shrub, so you can be assured that this plant makes a great bottom tier in an elevated garden format.

#ProPlantTips for Care

The Evercolor Eversheen Carex is adapted for partial shade to full shade. Long exposure to full sun will yellow the blades of grass over time.

It is important to keep this sedge's soil moist during the warmer months. Too much water staying for too long can be hazardous to this plant's health too, so be sure to use well drained soil when possible.

This plant is remarkably resistant to mammalian pests. Deer and rabbits tend to leave this plant alone, so fencing in your sedge should be unnecessary.

While the Evercolor Eversheen Carex is also mostly disease resistant, this sedge can still be susceptible to insects. Keep an eye on your plant for signs of aphid damage and be ready to transfer some ladybugs to your garden if the need arises.

This plant grows fairly controlled and has little need for pruning except for the occasional snip. If your plant looks like it could use a haircut, make sure to complete during the early summer so you don't damage any new growth.

If you live in an area with colder temperatures and want a sedge that can thrive then look no further than the Evercolor Eversheen Carex. You can start growing your own this season when you order from Nature Hills!
