Evergold sedge is an evergreen grass with attractive green and pale yellow variegated blades. This clump-forming plant has a graceful, arching habit and does well in the shade. Evergold sedge is tolerant of moist to dry soils and looks great in a mass planting or container.

When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
