Weeping Brown New Zealand Sedge


Native to damp habitats in New Zealand, Carex flagellifera is an evergreen clumping sedge with slender greenish juvenile leaves that grow upright before arching out and spilling over to the ground. Foliage color varies from metallic green to coppery-bronze to dull greyish-bronze. Fine-textured foliage resembles hair and is appealing to the touch. Flowering stems may reach heights of 3-6 ft. Looks great in containers or use massed in rock gardens or water gardens.
