CAREX ColorGrass®

CAREX ColorGrass®

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on May 23rd 2023

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.

Carex comans Amazon Mist

Seductively tousled tussocks of soft green, variegated foliage with twisting tips and an arching habit.


Carex comans Bronco

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.

Height: 10"

Carex buchananii Red Rooster

Finely textured red/bronze blades shoot upright and taper to thin, twisty tips. Prefers full sun.

Height: 24"

Carex testacea Prairie Fire

Slender, olive-green blades turn a unique orange hue in cooler temperatures. Forms attractive, fountain-like mounds. Cold hardy to Zone 6.

Height: 18-24"
