Carex appressa, commonly known as 'Tall Sedge', is an evergreen perennial clumping plant. It has lime green upright foliage. It is a great foliage contrast with grasses and strappy leafed plants. Carex is a very hardy and useful plant for both wet and dry aspects in the garden. Carex is ideal for rain and bog gardens.
Use Carex carefully as the foliage may irritate sensitive skin, so best kept away from pathways and where children play.
