Carex comans Amazon Mist™
A hint of variegation on slender light green blades lends an appealing soft-focus “misty” look to this proud member of our ColorGrass® collection. Arching habit and intriguing twisted tips complete the picture.

Like others in the series, Amazon Mist™ makes a great border-edger. But its lush form and graceful movement in the least breeze are especially effective in mixed containers.

The Game of the Name
The world’s second-largest retailer, the second-longest river, and this nifty sedge are all named for a race of women warriors from Greek mythology. First mentioned in Homer’s Iliad, those formidable females also had an arching, or rather archery, habit. They live on in pop culture via the Wonder Woman movie series, available on DVD from the aforementioned retailer.
