Carex

Search Carex
A large genus of more than 1500 species of grass-like plants, commonly known as sedges. At least 70 species are native to New Zealand. Their foliage is grass-like and they are clump or tussock forming, softening the edges in a landscape design like few other plants can do. They grow naturally and are bred in a wide range of colours, and can therefore compliment any planting scheme. Some are tall, some are short, some are curly, some are drooping and some are stiff. There is a Carex for every effect you could wish to create.
