Sedge New Zealand Hair Frosted Curls Carex Comans is a dwarf selection of one of the most popular ornamental, evergreen, perennial grasses. Sedge New Zealand Hair Frosted Curls seeds germinate in 3-4 weeks, and this particular variety of Carex Comans forms the unique looking, dense, weeping clumps of slender, silvery-green foliage that resembles a hairy mop.
Sedge New Zealand Hair Frosted Curls looks amazing cascading over rocks, a container or a wall and creating the illusion of a waterfall, shimmering even with a slight breeze. This ornamental Sedge grass is highly suitable for growing in pots, rock gardens, alpine gardens, borders, or as a dependable perennial ground cover. Carex Comans seeds can be sown directly outdoors in spring after last frost, and established Sedge New Zealand Hair thrives in moist soil and full sun tolerating partial shade.
