Orange New Zealand Sedge

Contact your local store to check availability

Bright green at the base, the foliage displays a nice orange-brown color in spring and summer, becoming noticeably orange in winter. A great filler for perennial borders or as a groundcover. Will self-sow but not aggressively. Evergreen. Photo credit: Doreen Wynja
