Carex Buchananii Grasses

Carex Buchananii (Leatherleaf Sedge)

A versatile small evergreen grass with ‘floaty’ fine hair like foliage that is curled at the tips. Coppery brown in colour, it often has a touch of pink during the Summer months. Silvery brown flower spikes emerge from the soft mound of foliage during mid-late summer.

This really is a useful little grass, plant them along the front of flower beds to gracefully soften the edges of paving, mix them into low maintenance ground cover plantings where the unusual foliage offers a wealth of opportunities to contrast with other types of Carex or different ground covering plants. They are also just perfect for more contemporary, modern plant combinations, maybe with Ophiopogon Nigrescens for example. They look great in containers too.

Carex Buchananii is easy to grow and accommodating, they thrive in all soil types including poorly drained, in sun or partial shade.
