Grasses...Uncinia Rubra (Red Sedge) and Carex testacea


Grasses...Uncinia Rubra (Red Sedge) and Carex testacea

These have been invauable this winter. I have five or six of each planted in the herbaceous border, and apart from them, there is little to see during the winter.

Lovely effect!

yes Siris...Marmalade. Probably my best growing Heuchera and a great one for over the winter.

JUlia, they are invaluable, and it's taken me a few years to appreciate them.

Thanks Wildrose! :)

I really like the one in the foreground.

Yes, the Uncinia is gorgeous JUlia. Not Fully hardy, but they always seem to survive here. I did lose one at Carnoustie...but that was lack of water after moving it more than cold.

Lovely - and I was just thinking that Uncinia doesn't seem to be hardy here, so it's great that yours is looking so good!

The influence of the sea just two miles away I guess Sheila!

Yes it must be Karen because they do well here....

Because it's evergreen I'm going to try it again in my new stony bed . . . fingers crossed!

Good idea! :)

Just fab for winter Karen, and movement in the garden too....the one you sent me is a real golden beauty!

I think that would have been Stipa Tenuissima Janey.
