Description
Through the last 60 years or so we have covered our shaded landscapes with pachysandra, vinca, euonymus and ajuga. The Carex have been patiently waiting for us to figure them out. This is a wonderful time to have a discussion with them. We need to understand how they can respond to our needs, our planting styles and our hurried lifestyles. Carex is a genus of plants with a similar appearance to grass, it has a soft appearance and texture, and diverse, small, floating flowers in May and June. It is a very durable, adaptable plant that enhances the health of the entire plant community.
