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

An ornamental grass you can grow in sun or part shade, Blue Zinger Carex is an attractive plant forming 8 to 10 inch tall attractive, tousled clumps of narrow, steel-blue leaves. The plant spreads slowly and is often used as a soil stabilizing groundcover on small embankments and slopes for erosion control. This versatile plant adds both color and texture to the landscape, requires little to no maintenance, grows in sun or shade, moist or dry soil, and is ideal for use as an accent in combination container gardens. Can't get much easier or better than that!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 8-10 inches tall and wide, Blue Zinger Carex is ideal for use in groupings or massed as a groundcover in sunny or shady sites. It also makes a fine grassy accent in mixed with other plants in combination container gardens. 

Spacing:  8 inches apart for mass plantings or solid border edging; 16 inches or more apart for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Blue Zinger Sedge is incredibly easy to grow. It adapts to most soil types, likes sun or shade, and tolerates dry or moist but well-drained soil. Very little, if any maintenance is required. Plants can be cleaned up after winter if necessary.
