Amazon Mist Carex Plant

The 'Amazon Mist' Carex comans, pronounced KARE-ex KOE-manz, Grass plant is a compact ornamental grass plant that is also called Sedge Grass, Curled Sedge or Switch Grass. Native to New Zealand, and though it resembles an ornamental grass, sedge grasses are in a different family and therefore have different attributes. Amazon Mist is tolerant of both full and partial sun and also thrives in moist to almost wet environments. In warmer climates the foliage is evergreen, while it is a perennial in colder climates, turning brown and going dormant in late fall. The slender leaves are bluish-green on the top side and silvery white on the underside, each one twisting upon itself at the tips which makes the plant look somewhat "misty", hence the name. Tiny yellow flowers rise on wispy stems in midsummer. Very eye-catching in containers or planted along a retaining wall and allowing the "fountain" to overflow! Each 3-inch pot contains one Amazon Mist Carex plant. More details...
