Carex scaposa

Carex scaposa

Regular price $16.00 Sale

Chinese Pink Fairy Sedge. Rarely does one ever think that they would plant a Carex for its flower. But now we have an exception. Great plantsman Dr. Richard Olsen, Director of the U. S. National Arboretum, whom I have known since he was a student, introduced this evergreen Carex with uncharacteristically wide leaves. But the most stunning thing about this species is that it puts on an unreal display of pink fuzzy-like flowers from July to fall. Even when it puts up a flower spike and the flowers fade, many times this stalk with flower a second time. So don't immediately remove it. It grows best in part shade to filtered sun with uniform moisture.
