Description

Height x Spread: 45cm x 60cm 

Native to New Zealand, this attractive evergreen sedge forms compact dense clumps of gently arching bronzed narrow leaves that almost skim the ground.  Attractive seed heads form in late summer increasing the frothy effect.

A great choice for adding texture, movement and sound into a garden, the fact that it retains its colour and structure over winter only increases its appeal, especially when dusted with frost.  Showcase its delicious bronze tones in combination with oranges and yellows such as Crocosmia and Helenium for contrast in form and flowerhead. 

To thrive it needs a moist but free draining soil that does not dry out totally, in either full sun or part shade.
