A Water-Feature Workhorse!

Every year, more home owners plan and build water features such as cascading waterfalls and fountains as very special focal points in their landscapes. And why not? They are soothing, beautiful and add an unmatched element of motion and sound.

But here is the thing…they can’t stand by themselves. Water features have to be anchored into the garden with water-loving plants to help them appear natural and nestle in to their surroundings.

If you are lucky enough to have a water feature in your yard or are planning a water feature for your yard - or even if you just want something to resemble water flowing in your yard, have we got a plant for you! Fox Red Curly Sedge (Carex buchananii).

This little sedge is a striking evergreen clump of bronze-red foliage that fades ombre-style to a flaxen color at the tips. This effect is pretty all the time, but when it is backlit by the rising or setting sun it is breathtaking! This is a versatile plant that thrives in the damp areas around pools, ponds and fountains. It is a perfect choice for those poorly-drained pockets so often found in dry stream beds or around large landscape boulders. It brightens up low points in the landscape and tidies up the base of a fountain. It is one of the only plants that will thrive in those over-splash areas from waterfall features, too.

Don’t wait to add this great water feature workhorse to your garden today! We know that you will love it.

* Fast Growing
* Easy-Care
