Like the mountain, Everest Sedge is hardy and resilient against cold weather. In summer it produces feathery wheat-like flowers. It’s a light and fun looking plant that is easy to manage and maintain. A good choice for rock gardens, patio containers and cottage or coastal style designs.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
