(aka: Carex 'Finwhite', 'Carfitol') Carex 'Everest' is a lovely white-edged sport of the popular Japanese Carex oshimensis 'Evergold', discovered in 2006 by Pat Fitzgerald of Ireland's Fitzgerald's Nursery. Carex 'Everest' is another wonderful textural ornamental grass for the deer-resistant woodland garden pallette. The 10" tall x 2' wide graceful evergreen mounds of white ribbons are fabulous, either as specimen plants or used in swirling drifts. Although the EU and US patent offices encourage non-sensical names, the breeder insists that Carex 'Everest' is the cultivar name.
