Example of approximately what these plants look like when shipped. See the eighth photograph of any plant to see a photo of what it looks like when shipped.
Carex, a splendid Sedge, yields graceful, arching foliage that bends and bows creating lush, green coverage of color like a fresh coat of paint. Uses for Carex are drastically varied from specimens, to borders, containers, along the bank of a pond, or mass plantings as lawn-substitute groundcover in shaded areas.

Rarely eaten by deer and disease resistant, long-lasting and easy to grow, Carex is a non-invasive, dense to the point of choking out weeds, and is prized for its performance on slopes for erosion control. Whatever your garden needs, this weeping willow of grasses is truly elegant in any setting.
