Carex testacea (Orange Sedge) - A clumping fine-textured evergreen sedge growing 1 1/2 to 2 feet tall with leaves that arch outward up to 2 feet. Its unusual orange color, most vivid during winter months, looks best in full sun and in moist well-draining soils. If planted in shade plants will remain mostly green. Brown flower spikes in summer are not showy but should be left to allow this short lived plant to reseed. Useful where its weeping quality will be shown, spilling over walls or rocks, or directly into the water garden. Great with contrasting rocks and paving. Hardy to < 15 degrees F.
