Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
Carex tenuiculmis 'Cappuccino' (New Zealand Hair Sedge). This chocolate-colored sedge is an extraordinary complement to any perennial garden. It is gracefully arching, forming an attractive mound. Its foliage tends to vary from deep-cappuccino to reddish-bronze. This unique coloring works well in contrast to flowering perennials. Wonderful accent plant in containers or borders, and even survives the first frost of fall. If it is not winter-hardy in your region, it can survive as a pest-free houseplant in winter and be brought to the garden again in the spring. Prefers moist, well draining soil, but don't overwater. Full sun (in cooler climates) to light/afternoon shade in warmer areas.
