Easy Care, Colorful, Carex ColorGrass®

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Apr 3rd 2024

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

Irresistible at retail, the trademark foliage structure and clump-forming habit of the ColorGrass® Collection means they can anchor stand-alone patio pots or serve as vibrant fillers or spillers in mixed containers.

Comfortable in full sun to part shade, this quartet offers easy care color and motion for a variety of modern, unique uses.

Let's take a look at four versatile beauties from the ColorGrass® series that were picked precisely for perfect pot performance.
