Carex Elata 'Aurea' Plants

A wonderful small sedge developing lightweight tufts of arching, green results in, each surrounded with white, which give the vegetation a significant glimmer. Plants look excellent expanded towards the front of a wet advantage or among other vegetation, especially lightweight perennials and low herbage, since they accept light colour. However they also look excellent expanded at the advantage of a lake, and are a useful solution to the problem of what to flower as a minor that looks genuine but will develop in regular advantage ground instead of requiring wet bog garden circumstances.
