Carexes are not true grasses but clumping grass-like sedges which are desirable for their interesting colors and forms. Colors can vary from green, blue green, yellow, bronze, and orange as well as some varieties with striping in the leaves. Plants can show variations in their coloring as the seasons change. Some varieties grow tall and erect (C. buchananii) while others grow low and arching (C. testacea), even long and flowing (C. comans). Plant Carex in sun to part shade and though most varieties require ample watering, some will tolerate varieties will tolerate drier conditions. Use low growing varieties as a lawn substitute or taller varieties in borders, rock gardens, Asian inspired landscapes, or pots. Clean out plants occasionally by ‘combing’ through the plant to remove dried foliage.
