The all-green cousin to the Everest Sedge and Evergold Sedge.
A muted and more simple choice than it’s stripey-leafed cousins. The Evergreen Sedge has solid green leaves that grow and droop into a rounded shrub. In the late summer, feathery brown flowers extend upwards from the core.
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.
