Cultivar Notes - 'Ice Dance'
This carex makes a bold statement in the shade garden. The leaves are dark green with bright white variegated edges. Small, cream, bottlebrush-like flowers are produced in mid-spring but are rather insignificant to the plant's ornamental value.
Genus Notes - Carex
Carexes are Sedges, not Grasses, but for the gardener, the distinction is moot. They vary widely in size, habit, and foliage color. Many are prized for their architectural quality. All tolerate shade, which makes them especially useful. Sedges tend to grow more like warm season grasses.
