Carex comans 'Bronzita'

Plant details

Carex comans 'Bronzita' is an attractive, mound-forming plant with tufts of fine, thread-like, evergreen leaves. It resemble a grass, but is actually a species of sedge. Most of those sold in garden centres have reddish-bronze foliage and may be labelled as bronze, although plants are naturally variable and some have greenish-yellow leaves. Plants are very striking grown in containers and also look at home planted around the edge of a pond, where the soil is moist but not wet. The bronze foliage of Carex comans 'Bronzita' is also good for adding foliage interest to a border of herbaceous perennials and grasses.
