Carex hachijoensis 'Evergold'
a/k/a Evergold Sedge, Sedge Grass, Variegated Japanese Sedge.
Zone 5 to 10,
Sun to part shade.
Mature foliage height 8 to 12 inches, clump forming.
Evergreen leaves with creamy yellow variegated center strip with deep green margins. Coffee-colored flowers in spring. A cool-season growing grass that will maintain color through the summer. Cut back about 2/3 in very early spring.
Unlike many other sedges, 'Evergold' prefers dry to average soil moisture, well-drained, loamy, sandy or clay soil; but will tolerate damp soil conditions. In northern climates, it should be situated out of the way of winter winds. Good ground cover; use as a border plant; or in rock gardens, mass plantings, and containers.

Reasonable pricing, prompt delivery, a winner.
Beautiful plants. We're using them to replace a bit of turf in a semi-shady area that wasn't doing well. We received our initial order in two boxes in early October. The plants in one box looked sick. We took a photo and emailed it to Bloomin. They responded immediately, sent us a replacement batch, diagnosed the sickly ones as having a non-harmful fungus, and advised us to cut them back. It's been 2 months now and the infected plants are bouncing back looking fine.
