Description / Carex Evercolor® 'Everoro'

Carex Evercolor® 'Everoro' is an evergreen perennial grass offering year-round interest. Grown for its showy variegated foliage, this highly ornamental plant produces an elegant fountain-like mound of finely textured, arching leaves with a large golden yellow central band bordered by a dark green margin. This grass also sets inconspicuous brownish flower spikes from late winter into summer, but they offer no decorative value.

A Carex oshimensis, commonly called sedge, Japanese sedge, or Oshima kan suge, 'Everoro' is a naturally occurring mutation of Carex oshimensis 'Evergold'. It is similar to its parent but has a deeper, darker coloration. 'Everoro' has a compact, clump-forming habit and a moderate growth rate. It is a rhizomatous plant that will slowly spread. 'Everoro' is valued as an accent plant in beds and containers but is shown to best effect massed or grouped and is especially nice as ground cover, edging, and erosion control. It is suitable to grow in woodland gardens and in the moist soils along stream and pond margins.

Easy to grow and hardy to -10° to -20°F, 'Everoro' grows best in partly shady to shady locations with fertile, moist, well-drained soils. It tolerates full sun in cooler climates, if kept moist, but color is richer in part shade. The plant benefits from yearly fertilization in spring.
