Prairie Fire Carex

Provides Year-Round Interest

Prairie Fire Carex, a low-growing sedge, changes colors with the seasons. Growing 24-28 in. tall with a 18-24 in. spread, it has grasslike foliage that goes from olive green, to orange, to reddish brown. The more sun this ornamental grass receives, the more orange the foliage turns. In early summer, red-brown plumes open above the upright foliage. Prairie Fire Carex adds color, texture and movement to containers, landscapes and gardens. It grows best when planted in moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Potted. Zones 6-9.
