|Botanical Pronunciation||KAH-reks bu-kan-AN-ee-eye|
|Lore||Carex is a genus of plants commonly known as true sedges. There are thousands of species of Carex distributed all over the world. The species Carex buchananii however is native to Zealand. The study of Carex is known as caricology, stemming from the Latin word caricologia.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slowly forms clumps 2 to 3 ft. tall and wide.|
|Bloom Time||Inconspicuous; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||This sedge is more grass-like than many of its kind. Its natural habitat is low-lying wetlands, usually in association with streams or ponds, but will do very well in a wet meadow. A good choice in poorly drained pockets of dry stream beds or beside large landscape boulders. A good solution for over-splash from rock waterfalls. A beautiful plant for edges of water gardens and tidy enough to work well around the base of a fountain. Great for brightening up that difficult low point in the landscape.|
