Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This ornamental grass produces narrow, upright foliage that forms an arching mound over time. The evergreen leaves are copper-bronze making a colourful feature all year round. Commonly known as the Leatherleaf Sedge, Carex buchananii is easy to grow and makes a useful accent plant that works well in a wide range of garden styles. Height and spread: 50cm (20").

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.

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.
Carex are very easy to maintain; simply comb our any dead and browning foliage during the summer. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Sedge in Spring.
