Carex oshimensis ‘Ice Cream’ (Variegated sedge)

Height: 12 inches
Spread: 18 inches
Light: Part sun to shade
Soil: Amended, moist, well-drained soil during first year in the ground. Fairly drought tolerant once established.
Description: Dark green leaves with a crisp line of creamy white down the center of each. A perfect balance of green and white. ‘Ice Cream’ is a naturally occurring mutation of Carex ‘Evergold’ discovered in 2007. A vigorous grower that can handle dry shade and adds subtle sophistication to the woodland garden. Also works well in containers where it can curl gently over the edge of the pot. Looks great with ferns, peachy or purply heucheras, toad lilies, and hostas. Evergreen.
