We're big fans of Carex. Our 32 varieties - yes, 32 varieties! - occupy four pages of our catalog. We're hooked!
Let's take a look at four summer blooming beauties from the ColorGrass® series that were picked precisely for perfect pot performance.
Irresistible at retail, the trademark upright/cascading, clump forming habit of the ColorGrass® Collection means they can anchor stand-alone patio pots or serve as the filler or spiller in mixed containers. That form also makes them a fine candidate to edge a border in full sun or part shade.
Seductively tousled tussocks of soft green, variegated foliage with twisting tips and an arching habit.
Don't let the name fool you, this pony is nicely tamed. Go ahead, stroke its mane of bronzy brown blades. You know you want to.
Finely textured red/bronze blades shoot upright and taper to thin, twisty tips. Prefers full sun.
Slender, olive-green blades turn a unique orange hue in cooler temperatures. Forms attractive, fountain-like mounds. Cold hardy to Zone 6.
