Description

Carex testacea ‘Prairie Fire’ is a beautiful evergrass grass that provides colour and texture throughout the year, including through the winter when its warm tones are especially welcome. Narrow, olive-green leaves with bright orange tips arch gracefully from dense clumps. The foliage transitions to a deeper orange in the autumn. During summer, brown flower spikes appear. A lovely accent for gravel gardens, edging borders or cascading from winter containers, thriving in full sun or part shade. Height and spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Carex into any moist, but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Brilliant for patio containers, mixed with flowering plants. Use a John Innes no. 3 soil mixture when planting into pots.
More Info
Carex are very easy to maintain; simply comb out any dead and browning foliage during the summer. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Sedge in Spring.
