IT’S A GRASS GRASS GRASS! (Carex  ColorGrass® Series)

IT’S A GRASS GRASS GRASS! (Carex ColorGrass® Series)

Posted by John Friel on Jul 6th 2021

Jumpin’ Jack hopped right to it when he found these at the garden center. Picked precisely for perfect performance in pots, the ColorGrass® collection is irresistible at retail.

Their trademark upright/cascading clump-forming habit 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 leaves with a misty overcast. Sensational when massed in formal or informal plantings. Height: 10”. Hardy in Zones 7 – 9.

Carex comans Bronco

Don’t let the name fool you, this pony is nicely tamed. Go ahead, stroke its fine mane of bronzy-brown blades. You know you want to. Height: 10”. Hardy in Zones 7 – 9.

Carex testacea Prairie Fire

Slender olive-green blades turn a unique orange hue in cooler temperatures. Forms attractive fountain-like mounds. Height: 18 – 24”. Hardy in Zones 6 – 9.

The Small Print

OK, you caught us. Technically, Carex isn’t actually a grass, it’s a sedge. But “It’s a Sedge Sedge Sedge!” just lacks that certain je ne sais quois, y’know? 

Jump on our Availability and get the edge with our edge-y sedges. They’re found in easy-planting, fast-finishing 72s from Emerald Coast Growers – your easy choice!
