The EverColor® Everlime Japanese Sedge Grass, or the Carex O. Evercolor Everlime, brings a pop of fun and personality with its striking, bouncy leaves. Its dark green and shiny foliage features bright, lime-colored stripes on the edges that give the perennial a unique appearance. During the fall, however, the leaves may display gold-like shades. This plant grows aggressively during the early stages of spring. You can expect your perennial to reach a height of approximately 12 to 15 inches and a spread ranging from 15 to 18 inches. You can use these in borders, containers, ground covers, mass planting, and wildlife gardens.

Native to Japan, the EverColor® Everlime Japanese Sedge Grass perennial grows at a medium rate with a cascading growth pattern. However, if you cut your plant back, it will regrow at a slow rate. This evergreen plant is deer, disease, and drought-resistant. Although not typically a common concern, some pests to watch out for include aphids, the Bactra venosa caterpillar, anthracnose, fungus gnat larvae, and the Rhizoctonia. Overall, this perennial will require very little maintenance on your behalf and is likely to attract birds to your garden. 

EverColor® Everlime Japanese Sedge Grass Plant Care

This perennial will grow best in an area with partial sun or even full shade. It must be protected from the harsh sun in very hot climates and should be sheltered from cold, winter areas. It needs well-drained soil with adequate drainage to thrive and will benefit from a thick layer of mulch around the root areas in both the summer and winter, as it will work to effectively keep the soil moist. You should water it on a weekly basis, or more often in cases of extreme heat. You can let the soil dry up a bit, but never let it dry completely. You may also use a slow release, low or medium rate fertilizer.

The EverColor® Everlime Japanese Sedge Grass does not require any type of pruning. However, you can prune it to improve the look of new foliage during the springtime. The best time to prune in this case would be from the latter half of winter to the very beginning of spring.

EverColor® Everlime Japanese Sedge Grass Plant Spacing

If you plan on planting your perennial in masses or as a bedding plant, it is important that you leave a minimum of 18 inches in between each plant.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
