Plant Description

Blue Zinger' is a dense, grass-like sedge with softly, cascading, blue-green leaves. Plants form slowly spreading clumps up to 16 inches tall. Grow it as a ground cover in light shade, in dry to moist soil. The effect is soft and fine but once established, 'Blue Zinger' is drought tolerant and tough. In the south it is evergreen. As with all Carex, a late winter hair cut will keep it tidy.
