Prairie Fire Sedge Carex testacea

Product Description

Small in Size, Big in Color

If you’re hoping for a stunning accent plant with minimal care, the Prairie Fire Sedge may be just the thing for you. Easy to incorporate in any planting, whether it’s a garden or pot, this upright, slender plant is green-bronze in color and tipped with orange highlights. Place it in full sun for an intense, dramatic color boost that will enhance any space!

This plant’s low maintenance features are another plus - and it’s deer resistant, salt and drought tolerant, and generally disease-free. Just be sure to plant this New Zealand native in an area with full sun (or partial shade) and moist, well-drained soil.

Since the Prairie Fire Sedge is compact in size, you can find a great place for it within your yard, garden or patio, without worrying that it will take up too much space. The cascading mound of arching leaves makes this a perfect addition to most greenery, especially with hot-colored perennials or yellow-green shrubs.

Make your yard stand out with this colorful grass, which is nearly evergreen. The Prairie Fire Sedge's coloring persists through most of the winter in warmer climates, injecting some life in the usually drab colors of cold weather.

This is a truly unique and vibrant plant that adds color while complementing your other greenery. Order your own Prairie Fire Sedge today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant in an area where it can receive full-sun or only partial shade. It can be planted in containers or amongst other foliage, just ensure the soil is well-drained.

2. Watering: Water regularly to maintain evenly moist soil - weekly, or more often, but still on the dry side. Do not overwater in the winter.

3. Fertilizing: Use a slow-release, medium-rate fertilizer.

4. Pruning: If cutting back this plant, do so early in the growing season to allow time for new growth to mature.
