EverColor®: The pot at the end of the rainbow!

Kilkenny, Ireland is a destination city, famed for arts, crafts, music festivals, ancient castles -- and modern Carex! The breeders at Fitzgerald Nursery have struck Celtic gold with this great group of sedges.

These well-behaved sedges form sturdy, compact, uniform mounds of glossy blades in a nifty range of easy-to-use sizes and colors. One variety, ‘Everillo’, has solid-color blades; the others are striped.

Flowers are subtle and inconspicuous. On the oshimensis types, they become interesting bristle-brush seed heads.

Hardy in Zones 6-9, EverColor grasses are made for the shade but will tolerate some sun. They’re excellent, low-maintenance candidates for containers, edging or ground cover. And they’re happiest in moist (not soggy) but well-drained soil. 

Have you EverColored? If not, you should sample these sensational sedges. They’re splendid in the landscape, or in containers. They come in easy-planting, quick-finishing 50-cell liner trays from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
