Bring a tangle of long lemony leaves into your garden with this zesty ornamental grass.
Sometimes described as a “messy bird’s nest”, Evergold Sedge certainly has an informal and irregular appearance. It’s dark green leaves feature a thick creamy yellow stripe down their middle and this mix of colours just adds to their “tousled” look. The Evergold Sedge also produces feathery flowers in the summer, but they are hard to spot amongst the jumble of “lemon peel” leaves.
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.
