This selection of Carex dolichostachya var. glaberrima is a delightful easy-to-grow but difficult to pronounce addition to any plant collection, via a Barry Yinger expedition to Japan. This evergreen deer-resistant carex has narrow, dark green leaves with a nice golden border. Carex 'Kaga nishiki' forms a delightful small clump, 10" tall x 20" wide, perfect for the rock garden or perhaps a woodland border...a good grower...striking!
