Carex 'Banana Boat' is a beautiful variegated form of the deciduous Carex siderosticta from Japan that makes a slowly spreading, deer-resistant clump of 6-8" long, bright golden leaves bordered with a dark green edge. Carex 'Banana Boat' is an easy-to-grow textural complement to ferns in the moist woodland garden. In 5 years, expect a 3' wide deer-resistant patch.
