More About Amazon Mist Sedge...

Amazon Mist Sedge is prized for its finely textured, hair-like, mint colored foliage. It has an interesting, mounding, graceful, growth habit with narrow leaves that flow over the ground or spill over the edges of a pot, creating an exotic look. The tips of the leaves curl back creating a misty effect, hence the name. Plants grow to about 12 inches in height with a spread up to 18 inches. 

Amazon Mist Sedge is useful as a border or planted in mass in garden beds and makes a great accent in small garden beds or containers.

Amazon Mist is easy to grow when provided the right conditions. It requires moist soil until established at which point it can tolerate periods of drought. It requires 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight however will tolerate all day sun provided the soil remains moist.

Amazon Mist is very low maintenance requiring little if any fertilizer. It can be teased or cut back to remove dead foliage in late winter before new growth begins to emerge in spring.
