Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
Carex buchananii 'Red Rooster Color Grass' (Leatherleaf Sedge, Buchanan's Sedge). One of the best known of the New Zealand sedges, grown for its narrow-leaved, dense, erect tussocks of russet-red or a copper-bronze color. Plants exhibit a strong, vertical form when young, then arch downward with age and possess distinctly curled leaf tips and inconspicuous flowers. Provide a growing area in full sun or partial shade, with moist, well draining soil. Grows in full sun along the coast, but requires some shade inland. A tolerance for wet soil allows the plant to be used near water. Newly planted clumps may be slow to establish.
