Carex testacea
Carex testacea
A beautiful densely-tufted native grass with a rich golden-brown-orange colouration intensified by sun and winter. Its arching and spreading foliage is handsome year round making it a plant of choice upfront near entrance ways, along paths and in patio pots. A great foil for dark or silver-foliaged structure plants.

A brightly coloured, graceful-foliaged native grass.

Uses: A great choice for garden edges, beneath fences, up a driveway or a brightly coloured, easy-care patio pot.
Position: Best colour in full sun, but will handle partial shade. Tolerant of dry, windy and coastal conditions.
Care: Little needed, occasionally pull off scruffy leaves, and if the summer flower stems look untidy, simply trim as desired.
