plant quick find clear
Although it looks like an ornamental grass, most of which need full sun and thrive in hot, dry conditions, clump-forming sedge is completely different. For one thing, it's a sedge, not an ornamental grass. And it prefers shade along with moist soils (making it a great plant to tuck among the hostas).
But like an ornamental grass, sedge has colorful arching foliage, most notably in beautiful glowing yellows, that is evergreen in warm climates and semievergreen in cold areas.
