Carex buchananii (Curly Top Sedge) - Evergreen. The unusual 'brownish' coloring of this sedge along with the curling at the tips of the leaves makes this plant an outstanding addition to any garden. This New Zealand sedge has vertical growth of 1 to 2 feet tall and a light airy appearance that is useful in mass or as an accent. Can be used in water logged soils or on the edge of the pond but does not tolerate submersion. Plant in full sun to part shade; keep soil moist. Hardy to <15 degrees F.  This description is based on research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Carex buchananii.
