Commonly known as Sedge, Carex is a vast array of perennial grasses that can add a touch of beauty and texture to any garden. The group includes a variety of deciduous and evergreen ornamental grasses, with some varieties that are suitable for sun-filled areas, while others thrive in shade and moist or dry soil.
Carex grasses are a great way to add dimension and interest to flower beds, rock gardens, borders, and pathways, making them a versatile and unique garden accent. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colours and can create stunning effects in any garden. With their low-maintenance needs and hardy nature, they are easy to care for and will provide a beautiful accent to any landscape. Carex grasses thrive in various soil types, from loose to clay, and prefer full sun or partial shade.
Carex grasses are perfect for rock gardens, borders, and containers and can soften the look of pathways and walkways. They are also excellent for adding dimension and texture to beds and borders and look great when planted in groupings of different heights and sizes. Carex grasses are versatile and can be used in various garden styles, from traditional to contemporary. They look great planted with other ornamental grasses, such as fescue or blue oat grass, and are an attractive addition to flower beds, providing a backdrop for annuals and perennials. Carex grasses are also a great way to add texture and colour to woodland gardens, where they can be used to provide a low-growing ground cover.
