This new selection of the wonderful Asian groundcover sedge has chartreuse golden leaves with a narrow medium green border. In late summer, the older foliage becomes viridescent (turns green), while the new foliage displays a stunning color contrast. In one season, expect a 1' wide mound of 6" long x 1" wide foliage. C. 'Spring Snow' is perfect for a groundcover in a moist woodland site.
