Carex tenuiculmis 'Cappuccino'

Common Name: Sedge Grass - Cappuccino Sedge Grass
Carex tenuiculmis 'Cappuccino'

Clumping cool season evergreen grass. Long and narrow, arching foliage emerges a rich red brown and transitions to a coppery brown with age, often accented with bright orange tips. Come autumn, the red tones return, often accented with oranges and yellows. Graceful mounding habit. Looks wonderful next to water features.
