Blue Zinger Sedge (Carex flacca 'Blue Zinger') will bring those shady, wet corners of your garden where nothing else will grow roaring to life with motion and color!
Blue Zinger provides cascading drifts of blue-green strappy, grass-like leaves that look beautiful tumbling over rocks or edgers, or in masses as a sweeping evergreen groundcover.
These foot-tall water-lovers are native to the USA and are equally at home in classic American cottage gardens as they are in woodland settings. They love the shade and are adaptable to a wide variety of soils.
Blue Zinger works well in mixed planters with other plants that love moisture and shade. Try it with Irises where the leaves will contrast with each other and draw you in for a closer look.
This deer resistant plant looks especially lovely grown in large groupings under the canopy of open, low-growing trees. They naturally spread slowly by underground rhizomes and, after a short while, they will form a dense mat that blocks out weeds and makes a lush blue-tinged carpet.
Trust us when we say that just one of these little beauties won't be enough. Order groups of three, five, or more, and let them recue those spots where nothing else has grown in your garden for years. Order your Blue Zinger Sedge today!
