Carex buchananii

Carex buchananii - Leatherleaf Sedge

A tufted perennial evergreen sedge from New Zealand, Carex buchananii has slender, orange-bronze leaves curved at the tips and looks particularly good when back-lit by the sun. Shimmering in the slightest breeze, it forms a lovely contrast to almost any flower, especially purple, blue and magenta. Brown flower spikes appear in late summer. Leatherleaf Sedge is a short-lived plant, but easily replaced, as it self-seeds, though not incontinently. An excellent container plant.
