A Fun, Shaggy and Striking Grass-like Sedge

When you were a kid did you read Dr. Seuss books? If so, the Frosted Curls New Zealand Sedge (Carex comans 'Frosted Curls') may look familiar. It looks like it jumped off the pages of The Lorax or borrowed its shaggy hairstyle from one of those surreal Seussian landscapes.

The shaggy Frosted Curls New Zealand Sedge will add spunk and personality to any garden with its long, full, grass-like leaves. These long slender leaves are silvery-green and iridescent in the sunlight. This tufted sedge will shimmer on sunny, breezy days.

One of the most admirable qualities gardeners appreciate in this plant is its fountain-like shape and manageable size. This plant will add texture to your garden when you plant several as a border along a path or garden bed. Its unforgettable shape and texture make it a great pondside plant, too. This funky little plant adds interest and excitement when placed with flowers and bulbs in a planter or pot.

This drought-tolerant ornamental grass grows best in full sun or partial shade. When it comes to moisture, this plant is quite versatile. It enjoys moist to well-drained soil. You can even separate the clumps in spring to spread the joy to another spot in your garden.

The Frosted Curls New Zealand Sedge invites fun into your garden. Its thin, hair-like leaves beg to be touched, making it a great plant to introduce young gardeners to the art of horticulture. After you’re done reading some Dr. Seuss, get out into the garden and let little ones stroke this plant’s curly locks and watch them giggle with joy. Let kids practice their gardening skills by dividing this plant in spring and planting the clumps.

This plant produces a purple and brown flower in late spring into early summer.

This ornamental grass is an excellent choice for adding texture to your flowerbeds or as edging. Order yours today!
