Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Carex elata 'Aurea' is one of the showiest sedges. This attractive perennial grass forms clumps of gently arching, golden foliage edged with contrasting green margins. From late spring this RHS AGM variety throws up feathery brown blooms on tall stems. Native to Britain, Bowles' Golden Sedge makes a fine ornamental for planting in wet soil around shaded ponds where the variegated foliage is at its best. Height: 70cm (28"). Spread: 45cm (18"). Planting depth: Zones 1, 2 & 3 to 20cm below water level.
