Carex testacea

Evergreen clumping grass with bright orange/olive green narrow weeping leaves on a 15" tall x 30" wide mound. Plant in full sun to maximize the orange color, but it does tolerate some light shade. It just stays greener the more shade it gets. Give good drainage and average to light water. Drought tolerant once established. Makes a nice accent when planted in mass. USDA zone 7 in cold hardiness.
