Ice Dance Japanese Sedge

Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance'

SKU
3583
Strong creamy-white leaf margins add brightness to shady and woodland gardens. Vivid foliage spreads by underground stems (rhizomes) to create a dense mat without invasiveness. Summer flowers have little value. Exceptional choice for Asian inspired gardens and to cover ground in native and wild gardens. Remains evergreen to -10 Fahrenheit. Herbaceous perennial. Full to partial sun. Moderate grower, blades to 1 foot tall, spreading indefinitely.
