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.
