EverColor® 'Everest' Variegated Sedge, also known as Japanese Sedge, offers reliable color from season to season. Ribbon-like blades provide rich texture to contrast broad-leaved shade plants like Hostas and Hydrangeas. Perfect for brightening shady corners of the landscape, the white striping lends an almost silver effect that compliments white-blooming annuals and perennials. Also works well along pond edges and in rain gardens. Plants grow in compact mounds that can be tidied in spring by gently raking out old  foliage.
