Carex oshimensis

Silver Variegated Japanese Sedge, A vigorous mound-forming evergreen plant to 1 foot tall and wide with very tidy looking silvery-white margined dark green leaves. Flowers in late spring and summer are not showy but also do not detract from the clean look of this plant. Plant in cool full sun to shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate regularly. Cold hardy to around 0 degrees F. This plant makes a bold statement as a container plant, as an accent, a border planting or as a large scale groundcover in the landscape. Useful on the edge of the water garden but dislikes complete submersion.
