An unusual sedge, this forms dense clumps of short, arching, grassy, evergreen foliage. Colour is strongest on new foliage in late spring. Plants are not fast-growing and look most effective planted in groups as leafy ground cover at the front of a sunny border. Team them with perennial grasses that enjoy similar conditions and avoid planting with anything vigorous that would smother them, as the plants need plenty of sun to thrive.
