From variegated plant guru the late Dr. Yokoi of Japan via UK grass collector Roger Grounds comes Carex 'Silver Sceptre', a brightly variegated, deer-resistant groundcover sedge composed of white-striped leaves that are only 1/8" wide but 15" long. The foliage arches outward to form an evergreen, 4' wide patch in 8 years. Carex 'Silver Sceptre' behaves well when used at the base of shrubs, trees, or as an accent between the contrasting texture of ferns and hostas in the woodland garden. In winter hardiness trials at the University of Minnesota, Carex 'Silver Sceptre' has outperformed all the other evergreen variegated carex. Carex 'Silver Scepter' is often listed as a selection of Carex morrowii, which is absolutely incorrect...unfortunately, we don't know the correct species yet. Plant Delights was pleased to introduce Carex 'Silver Sceptre' to the American market in 1999.
