A Crave Worthy Carex Collection

A Crave Worthy Carex Collection

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Apr 12th 2023

We're big fans of Carex. Our 32 varieties - yes, 32 varieties! - occupy four pages of our catalog. 

We're hooked! Indulge us as we brag on some of our favorites.

Shown above, Carex pensylvanica (Pennsylvania sedge)

North American Native. An excellent groundcover. Foliage is soft and curls gently, turning pale brown for the winter.

This is a multi-talented group whose members shine as individuals or in masses. Carex can edge borders and fill containers. It can be "green mulch" or a lawn alternative. It looks, grows and sells like a grass, but it's actually a sedge, in the Cyperaceae family.

Carex elata 'Aurea'

(Bowles Golden)

The finely textured leaves of this golden variegated sedge glow in any landscape in masses or as an impressive specimen. Moisture loving.

Carex dolichostachya 'Kaga Nishiki'

(Gold Fountains)

Japanese sedge with golden green leaves and a fountain like form. Excellent in a container.

We carry 31 (plus one!) varied and versatile Carex "flavors" sure to sweeten sales. They come in smooth-planting, fast-finishing liners from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
