A native to New Zealand, this sedge is useful in containers, flower beds, and along borders. Plant in clusters to accent the fountain like feature of its slender leaves. The tops of the leaves are blue-green and the bottom is white – which is often revealed as the plant curls and twists back. As with most sedge this plant will thrive in a moist to nearly wet soil that is well drained. With tiny clusters of flowers floating atop thin stems in summer, the leaves will die back winter. Remove them to allow for new growth the following spring. Grow this plant in sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil. Use it for its contrasts of texture and habit in containers, mixed beds and mixed borders. Or plant it as edging for walkways, or massed as a ground-cover.

Hosta – The bold foliage of hosta makes a dramatic contrast to the grassy foliage of sedges. Combine contrasting shades of green for added effect.
Iris – The upright grasslike leaves of Siberian iris team well with the arching leaves of sedges. Both appreciate moist soil in semishade.
