Carex are from the sedge family, forming compact tufts of green or variegated foliage. They thrive in moist soil conditions or as a shallow marginal plant in the pond. Carex look good grown towards the front of a moist border or among other plants, especially compact perennials and grasses, since they tolerate light shade.
