Silver Sceptre Sedge. With white striped leaves only about half the size of 'Ice Dance', this Carex makes a stunning edging plant or an awesome groundcover. When planted in shade this selection makes a dramatic statement as a border or mass planting. It is quite well behaved but will slowly spread. Dr. Masato Yakoi, a friend in Japan, first introduced this plant. He was truly a world expert on variegated plants. With trials at his University, it has proven to be the most cold hardy of any variegated Carex.
