Full sun to considerable but not dark shade with regular water in rich soil. Great winter container plant. Small blooms with tan stems in mid-late summer. Cut back hard in early spring, or just comb out tired leaves. Lovely edging paths or on hillsides.

Glistening, dark green slender leaves embellished with crisp white margins and small purplish white flowers on triangular stems hallmark this neatly tufted variegated Sedge. Fully evergreen in milder climates, the sturdy fine textured mound spreads slowly, casting a long lasting sprightly charm upon the rockery, woodland beds or patio pots. 'Snowline' relishes light shade and loose moist soil, withstands tree roots, wards off deer and, if planted closely, makes a picturesque easy to maintain ground cover.

Info

Dainty, sweet little 'toy sedge'…6-8" high and wide (plants this small are nice in groupings!); slow growing (could eventually double that size over time). The very fine blades are edged in snow white giving this critter an overall silvery look. It will take sun with summer moisture, but is at its best in lightly shaded locations – woodland, rock garden, containers. Easy to grow and a good looker all year in the PNW! Deer proof.
