Carex 'Ice Dance' is a variegated sedge that does well in dry, semi-shady conditions. It is early to bloom and sends up its flowering stalk within a couple weeks of the ground thawing. It spreads through a rhizomatous root system/ Offset can be separated from a parent and replanted almost any time of the growing season. 'Ice Dance' can grow about 10"-12" tall and spread widely.
|Here on the edge of my hosta bed, there is dappled sunlight, but typically dry conditions. Often I am watering with a mister. You can see the carex growing right next to some large hosta plantaginea/|
This variegated carex brings light to shady spaces. If you don't grow a carex, this is one to try.
