Grasses generally perform poorly in shade, but their close relatives the sedges prefer it. This evergreen selection has striking, banded leaves with a central stripe that is creamy white on new growth, creamy yellow on mature foliage. Makes a bright accent in a shady corner. Best in moist but well-drained soil but tolerates dry soil better than many other sedges. Compact, tufted habit. AGM winner.

This excellent Japanese sedge has bright yellow bands on arching leaves. It forms a neat, compact, rounded clump that grows to about 1' in sun or partial shade. A superb border or container plant. Suitable for moist areas, even drier ones. Adds a glow to our gray days of winter here at the nursery.
