Carex oshimensis 'Evergold' is a grassy, evergreen sedge with long golden leaves, each with deep green margins. It makes a graceful, arching clump that doesn't spread. It's ideal for growing in perennial container displays as a foil for brightly coloured flowers, and also looks good planted beside ponds or at the edge of borders. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Carex oshimensis 'Evergold' in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. Comb through plants in winter to remove dead foliage.

I have the planted just at the top of a low wall. It really adds colour and shape to a shady border.the plant instructions say to cut back each year but I find combing out the dead leaves much better. I divided last year and am hoping to plant out across the length of the wall.
