New Zealand Hair Sedge


This is an attractive sedge that forms clumps of hair-like leaves to about a foot tall and a foot wide. When well-grown, this sedge forms tufts that really have the look and texture of hair. 'Bronze' hair sedge was selected for its light brown to bronze coloring, and it looks excellent at the front of beds and borders.
