This interesting sedge forms dense tussocks of narrow, bronze-brown leaves. Stunning in contrast with silver foliage or coloured flowers. It is best in full sun with good drainage.  Height to 60 cm.The small inconspicuous flowers are borne in summer over its evergreen foliage. Its colour and elegant form make it particularly useful for winter containers where it looks good planted with spring bulbs and ivies. Trim back old foliage in spring if untidy.
