(aka: C. 'Snowline', C. 'Marginata', C. 'Variegata', C. 'Hime Kansuge') This wonderful evergreen sedge can be used as an edger or a specimen clump. The 10" tall x 20" wide clumps have narrow leaves to about 6" long with thin green and white stripes. In spring, the clump is topped with cute, but inconspicuous brown carex flowers... great for any woodland garden!
