Description

"Golden Sedge" is an elegant, bone hardy, dwarf ornamental grass, with leaves that become rich yellow edged in green. The overwhelmingly noticeable point of interest is the fact that the spherical green seeds, which are held in most attractive bunches at the ends of short pendulous stems, turn bright golden-orange later.

Sowing Advice

Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
