The Evergreen variety of carex has long spikes which are coloured a deep green but with a beautiful and striking golden stripe running down the centre of the leaf. It can grow up to half a metre high and spans up to half a metrs in width. A type of grass, it is great in winter displays as it keeps its bold yellow streak and adds texture to a flat winter border. It also looks stunnign in a more oriental inspired garden, filled with long grasses such as the carex, ornaments such as our Da Vinci Buddha and a bronze suite such as our Havanah Bronze Suite.
Carex care: The carex is a very low maintenance plant, only requiring a pruning of dead leaves in the sumer, and so is great for those with little time to spare. It can take partial shade and exposed conditions, and wil grow well in any well drained soil.
