Carex 'Feather Falls' Japanese Sedge



Carex 'Feather Falls' Japanese Sedge has striking green and white, grassy foliage on large plants with a lovely waterfall form. Carex 'Feather Falls' forms low to medium height tufts of foliage that are effective when used as a ground cover or edger. Carex 'Feather Falls' has more sun tolerance than other variegated Carex oshimensis, plus good heat tolerance.

Prefers light shade, but will take sun as well as full shade. Likes moist, well-drained soil, but is drought tolerant once established. This evergreen sedge is fantastic for containers as well as in the landscape. While not true grasses, sedges look similar to grasses.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
