Evergold Sedge (Carex hachijoensis) is an award-winning, easy-care grass that will add deep green and creamy-gold stripes to your landscape. Grasses are easy to grow and offer color and texture with their long, bladed leaves. Evergold Sedge has variegated leaves, so they're twice as interesting! You can enjoy the grass all year, leaving the blades to sway in the wind through fall and winter to regrow in spring. You'll also see coffee-colored flowers appear on this grass in spring.

The mounded shape of Evergold Sedge reaches nearly 18 inches tall and about 16 inches wide. It's a perfect featured vertical plant for a container, accompanied by low-growing or cascading flowers. Since it can handle some shade and still look great, this sedge grass is a versatile plant for containers, garden beds or the landscape. It also can grow in many climates, in the cold nights of zone 5 through the summer days of zone 10.

Evergold Sedge Care

Plant Evergold Sedge in full or partial sun or in a container mix that drains well. Give the grass average water with a little extra water in summer heat. Since it's a cool-season grass, its growth slows in peak heat. There is no need to deadhead your sedge. Leave the grass blades for winter and cut them back in late winter or early spring (as soon as snow is gone), leaving one-third of the plant intact.

Evergold Sedge Spacing

One Evergold Sedge adds color and texture to any garden bed or container. Plant several in the landscape as a grassy border, spacing the plants about 12 to 16 inches apart from center to center.

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.
