Pretty Sedges for your Containers

Easy to grow, low maintenance and tough, Sedges can help you create a terrific display with their bold variegated foliage, cascading with elegance or the dramatic contrast their tufted, erect copper-bronze foliage offers when mixed with silvers or hot flower colors. If you want to create a magnificent display during the cold months of the year, opt for evergreen Sedges that will reliably brighten the dull days of winter.
