Common names

New Zealand hair sedge, Sedge


Carex comans (New Zealand hair sedge). This is a low dense evergreen perennial clump which is native to New Zealand. The yellow green leaves will grow to about 1ft then will flop over, creating the impression of a head of hair. It is a good idea to plant them in their masses or perhaps on a slope.

    Jackie loves naturalistic planting especially prairie style grasses & perennials but uses a huge number of species in her designs.
    She also loves wildlife friendly plants & tries to incorporate as many as possible into her planting schemes.
