Carex 'Spark Plug' is a new introduction from our friends at Terra Nova...a dwarf tetraploid version of the great evergreen Carex 'Sparkler'. Compared to its parent, Carex 'Spark Plug' is much more compact, topping out with 9" stalks of unusual spiral, palm tree-like variegated foliage. Carex 'Spark Plug' is great in the woodland garden, either as an accent plant or mass drift. In a container, the tight clumping Carex 'Spark Plug' is just way too cute! Average to moist soils are fine for this easy-to-grow sedge.
