BANANA BOAT SEDGE

Carex siderosticha 'Banana Boat'

Buy Banana Boat Sedge online. This stunning ornamental grass can be slightly deceiving to the eyes, as it can look just like a thin leafed hosta, however, it is most definitely a broad-leafed Sedge. It leaves can reach up to 1" wide and feature dark green margins with banana yellow centers. Unlike other sedges, this grass does like more shade than sun, as its brightly colored leaves can scorch in the afternoon sun.
