(Carex 'Shima-nishiki) This recent introduction from Japan adds a new dimension to this fabulous, but normally green, Asian deer-resistant groundcover... perfect for a moist shady site in the woodland garden. This low-growing and slowly spreading sedge (1' spread each season), boasts 6" long x 1" wide light green leaves with a nice golden edge and occasional yellow stripes through the leaf center. C. 'Island Brocade' would be a perfect woodland foil for blue hostas as well as for ferns and gingers. This is often listed as a similar species, C. siderosticta, but carex guru Dr. Tony Reznicek confirmed its true identity for us.
