Evercolor Eversheen Carex
Carex oshimensis  'Evercolor Eversheen' 

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Carex variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.

Special Attributes

Evercolor Eversheen Carex is a very cool looking maintenance-free ornamental grass that forms soft weeping mounds of fine-bladed green leaves and a large bright lime-yellow central band that provides wonderful texture and color in garden beds or container gardens. Plant Eversheen Carex and it will be one of if not the most noticeable plants in your garden!

Landscape & Garden Uses

Its clumping rather than spreading growth habit to 18 inches tall and 18 inches wide make Everest Carex the perfect choice for a border along paths and walkways, for splashes of color in groupings, or in stunning mass plantings in home foundation plantings, landscape borders or on embankments and slopes. It is also effective as an underplanting for shade trees and smaller trees such as Japanese maples. Very nice as a solo in containers or to provide grassy texture and color in combination container gardens. A fine addition to ornamental gras gardens, rock gardens, shade gardens and tropical look gardens.  

Suggested Spacing:  15 inches apart for mass plantings or solid border edging; 30 inches or more apart for space between plants

Cultural Preferences

This Carex is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and part sun, preferably morning sun with afternoon shade. Avoid direct afternoon sun. Almost maintenance free and slowly forms a clump by spreading roots but is not invasive at all. We rarely fertilize or prune it. In areas that experience colder winters the foliage may need to be groomed or cut back to the ground before new growth emerges in spring.
