Carex buchananii
Carex buchananii
This is an unusual evergreen grass with fine-textured, coppery brown foliage that has attractively curled tips and takes on a beautiful pinkish hint in the summertime. Its unique and beautiful colouring make it useful for planting at the edge of a mixed border so that it can trail gracefully over the lawn. Silvery-white spikes of flowers which bow to the ground are produced between July and September, adding colour and interest to the garden when other plants are starting to fade. It is tolerant of a wide range of conditions and looks great when grown as a specimen plant which is surrounded by greenery.
