A small, distinctive sedge to 4” high with flat, narrow leaves topped by blunt tips. Foliage color is variable in the species, ranging from green to gray to copper-red. The clonal selection we grow has rich copper-brown foliage and an extremely diminutive habit. Plants spread slowly by rhizomes to 2’ wide. An appealing sedge for rock gardens or for the front of a moist border, this one is best with regular water in full sun or shade. Occurs in bog conditions in the wild. Hardy to 5F. New Zealand.
