Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance'

 

Variegated Sedge

Carex is an ornamental sedge with many different varieties now available, in a range of colours and textures. Ornamental grasses tolerate a wide range of conditions, but most like a sunny position in light, moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil. They do not need much feeding and just one application of a balanced fertiliser in spring is adequate. 'Ice Dance' is a dense, spreading sedge grown for its foliage. Looks good all year round, even in winter. Insignificant early spring flowers, but the attractive foliage complements most other plants.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Suitable for mass planting and for planting as a specimen in a container. Plant in any soil that doesn't get too dry. Use a good quality general purpose compost for container growing. New plants are best planted in early to mid-spring. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
