(SPARKLER SEDGE) This sedge has personality! Its bright, variegated leaves arranged in whorls around 12-15” tall stems lend a decidedly artistic look to our woodland gardens in light shade. Average garden conditions will suffice for this ‘pretty’. A nice touch artsy touch that looks great 365 days a year! USDA Z7

Info

This striking variegated sedge originated as a sport off the solid green species and quickly surpassed its parent in popularity. The long slender leaves held in virtual whorls are broadly lined with creamy-white margins and give the plant its distinctive character. This handsome foliage forms on thick bamboo-like stalks to 2' tall and brightens partly shaded corners through much of the year, until cold winter temperatures knock it down for the season. Plant in rich soil in part shade or full sun along the coast and provide regular water. Hardy to 10F. Japan.

One of the most striking sedges for woodland gardens, 'Sparkler' has white edged leaves that stand up in whorls and in summer fascinating flower spikes that resemble Papyrus. Forms clumps to 2' wide and 2' tall in moist, rich soil. Pair with ferns, hostas and heucheras for an excellent contrast in texture. Semi-evergreen, disappearing below 15 °F, and re-sprouting. Cut back hard in early spring. Moist soil. Japan.

Tony Avent describes these as tiny variegated palm trees, but you might get the picture. This evergreen, variegated sedge is best on a moist site and out of the blasty sun. To 12-15" high with mini-papryus-like foliage. Handsome in the woodland garden and stunning in a container. From Japan and frost hardy in upper USDA zone 7.

From Japan comes one of the most attention-drawing plants (cures ADD) in our entire garden (and without flowers). This gorgeous, upright, evergreen deer-resistant sedge resembles a grove of miniature variegated palm trees with cute little whorls of dramatic white- and green-striped foliage atop each of the 12-15" tall stems. This is a real eye-catcher when planted among ferns in the woodland garden...prefers moist-to-normal garden conditions.
