6-12” tall x 6-12” wide. Carex ‘Banana Boat’ shows off with bold color and texture. Set plants against dark green foliage or purple hues for emphasis and pair with fine textured-plants for high contrast. Widely adaptable, ‘Banana Boat’ softens the edges of flagstone pathways and thrives as a filler alongside the water garden. Use to edge shady beds and borders, or plant in small masses to accent taller perennials. Plants also naturalize well in woodland gardens. Carex prefers moist, well-drained soils, but tolerates both dry and wet conditions, making it useful in raingardens. Plants require little maintenance, but benefit from irrigation in hot, dry weather. Foliage color softens from gold to yellow in the summer heat. Cut foliage to the ground in late winter as needed.
