How to Use Evergold Sedge Grass in the Landscape
Ornamental Sedges make easy-care foliage plants. Use the to boost interest with graceful, arching, variegated blades sweeping the path. Kids love running their hands along the leaves, and "patting" them.
Evergold Sedges are perfect for border plantings. Use them at the very edge of every planting bed in a long, running hedge. You'll tie the look of your garden design together.
For a mass planting, space them 12 inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next. You'll create a wonderful, mounding texture that looks great at both a distance, and up close.
Cascading leaves arch up and out in a lovely fountain. Each blade of grass features a cream-colored strip running down the center.
Study these beautiful small grasses up close by adding to exterior containers. They make great "Thrillers" in a smaller pot or as "Fillers" in large pots.
Fill an open spot near your downspout or soften the edge of a Rain Garden. Tuck them underneath your hose!
#ProPlantTips for Care
Give them a spot in full sun or partial shade, with at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day. They tolerate a wide range of soils, including dry soils. However, the soil should be well-drained most of the time.
These easy-care plants tolerate a wide variety of growing conditions. They are heat tolerant and cold hardy. They'll survive the dreaded dry shade, but truly shine in rich, well-drained soil that remains moist.
Provide regular water for best results. Add a 3-inch layer of mulch over the root systems to keep them cool and moist.
Evergold is a cool season grass that can be left up for winter interest until early spring. In warmer climates, the leathery leaves will remain evergreen.
Snip a few inches of old growth off in late winter to start over fresh. They'll bounce back with spring growth.
These easy-care, variegated plants look amazing each year when planted in your yard. In your outdoor containers, they'll be an extremely dynamic focal point for you. Enjoy Evergold Sedge Grass, and order today!
