Carex testacea is one of the hardiest of the New Zealand Hair Sedges and one of our favorites. It forms striking mounds of narrow, bronzy-orange leaves. When exposed to sunlight, the foliage seems to shimmer with movement through all seasons. It’s a striking solution in rock gardens as well as containers. And it prefers exposure to partial sun with regular watering.
