A unique woodland sedge with personality. Vibrant lime green broad leaves (1 to 3 cm width) grow up to one foot tall and take the spotlight over the short-lived and inconspicuous flowers that emerge in Spring. Prefers highly organic, moist soil in the shade but can tolerate some dry shade as well. This semi-evergreen would pair well with some ferns beneath some shrubs or trees where there is fertile soil.

Ontario Hardiness Zone: 4 to 7 (Find out your Hardiness Zone here)
