(syn: C. stricta) This well-known and highly prized, clumping golden sedge was discovered in Norfolk, England by the late, great plantsman, E.A. Bowles. The upright, narrow, golden foliage is highlighted by a narrow green border. The color is brightest in spring and early summer. C. 'Bowles Golden' prefers bright light but a very moist soil. This sedge has been featured in all the best garden magazines in an array of spectacular color combinations.
