Sedge New Zealand Hair Cappuccino Carex Tenuiculmis is a popular, evergreen, ornamental grass that is widely grown for its attractive foliage. Sedge New Zealand Hair Cappuccino seeds need light to germinate so they have to be sown on the soil surface and just barely covered with topsoil not deeper than 1/8 of inch. Carex Tenuiculmis is a compact growing ornamental Sedge that forms the eye-catching, gracefully arching mounds of narrow, deep-cappuccino to reddish-bronze leaves.
Sedge New Zealand Hair Cappuccino is an extraordinary complement to any perennial garden, and its unique coloring works very well as an accent to perennial flowers, so this ornamental grass is a popular specimen for growing in containers, pots, hanging baskets, mixed borders, rock and alpine gardens. Carex Tenuiculmis seeds can be started directly outdoors, and once established Sedge New Zealand Hair Cappuccino prefers full sun and moist but well drained soil, but occasional shade is tolerated.
