Carex panicea
Carnation grass

UK Native: Yes

Height: Medium

Planting Zone: 1 - 2

A lovely carex with slender blue-green foliage. Does not grow too tall and provides a pleasing backdrop for other marginals. Also is a nice rass for garden planting in a moist situation. Brown flower spikes are produced in summer. Trim decaying foliage in autumn. This versatile plant is as much at home in the margins of a pond, providing it is not planted too deep. We recommend no more that 5-10cm of water above the top of the pot.
