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.
