Carex buchananii

Leather leaf sedge. A clumping perennial with fine coppery red-brown foliage to 2’ tall. Plants exhibit a strong, vertical form when young, then arch downward with age and possess distinctly curled leaf tips and inconspicuous flowers. Useful in water gardens, rock gardens, and woodlands, the leather leaf sedge grows in full sun along the coast, but requires some shade inland. Best in well-drained soils with regular water, though established plants are often marginally drought tolerant. Hardy to 0F. New Zealand.
