Comments: This is a clump sedge that is popular in detail design work. It can grow in a wide range of soil conditions from moderately dry to wet. It grows well in small containers and planters where plants can be viewed up close. Although this sedge blooms, the flowers are not very showy, but the ten inch leaves with a creamy-yellow stripe down the center provide the primary feature of this perennial.
