(Sometimes listed as Carex morrowii ‘Aureovariegata') Sedges are grass-like plants, mostly preferring sites with moist, rich soil. This Japanese selection forms a low cascading clump of leathery green leaves, with a bright creamy-yellow stripe down the centre. Brownish flowers are insignificant. A choice plant for edging, or in the rock garden. If the tips of the leaves get wind-burn over the winter, they may be trimmed with scissors in the spring. This is a well-behaved, non-spreading plant. Clumps may be divided in early spring. Tolerates dry shade with occasional watering. Evergreen.
