Add some color and texture to your garden with Carex testacea Orange Sedge, Red Switch Grass, and Speckled Sedge. These ornamental grasses may technically be sedges, but they are a popular choice for their warm orange color and dense clump forming habit. These grasses work well in a perennial border or container, thriving in full sun or partial shade. They are drought and salt tolerant, making them native to New Zealand where they grow on sand dunes. The leaves are olive green in partial shade and orange in full sun or in the fall/winter, providing stunning color contrast. Mass plantings create a spectacular addition to any garden or landscaping. Try out these grasses for a low maintenance and visually appealing addition to your outdoor space.
