The perennial Ribbon Falls Sedge Grass, or Carex Ribbon Falls as it is also known, is ideal for dappled or even full shade. It produces deep green blades that curl at the bottom and are evergreen, adding year-round interest. Remaining small, Ribbon Falls grows to an eventual 18 inches high and wide and is suitable for a range of uses. This sedge makes a tough and great alternative to Liriope. 

With its lush green foliage, the Ribbon Falls Sedge is ideal for either planting in a mixed container or planting en masse to provide a textured shade-loving carpet. Furthermore, you can really show its ornate form by growing it in a hanging pot to drape over. This Sedge Grass is tough and suitable for growing in zones 5 through to 9. If that wasn’t enough, it is also resistant to deer and needs little ongoing care. 

Ribbon Falls Sedge Grass Plant Care

It is best to grow this carex in either light or full shade, as hot sun can burn the foliage. It prefers well-drained, fertile soil. To encourage lush new growth, you can apply a weak solution of a general fertilizer in spring. When watering, aim to keep the soil evenly moist. 

Ribbon Falls Sedge is evergreen in warmer parts. However, for colder areas, remove any old or tatty-looking leavesin late winter or early spring before the new ones begin to grow. 

Ribbon Falls Sedge Grass Plant Spacing

As a clump-forming perennial, the Ribbon Falls Sedge Grass tends to grow no more than 18 inches across. To appreciate its form, you can plant it out at a spacing of around 15 to 18 inches.

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.
