One of the most eye-catching varieties of New Zealand Sedge Grasses, Carex Comans Frosted Curls is prized for its unusual foliage. Effective and striking, this evergreen perennial grass works best in borders, containers or as edging.
The shimmering, silvery-green leaves offer multiple seasons of interest. Slightly curling towards the tip, the narrow, blade-like foliage starts as pale green in the spring, turning to sandy shades in the autumn, and bronze in the winter. Although this ornamental grass flowers in the late spring, the flowers are ornamentally insignificant.
Easy to grow, Carex Comans Frosted Curls thrives in well-drained, fertile soil and full sun to partial shade. Although it is not very finicky when it comes to growing conditions, this cultivar dislikes overly wet soils, especially during the winter months. This variety of New Zealand Sedge grass can be successfully grown in larger pots and containers as well.
Forming a tufted mound as it matures, this dwarf cultivar can grow to be up to 50 cm high and across. With its curling leaves, this compact ornamental grass can be a great choice for covering up bare patches in your garden or for underplanting larger shrubs or trees.
With over 1,500 Carex varieties, many of them successfully grown in the United Kingdom, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Carex Comans Frosted Curls is fully hardy in Britain and Ireland. Although it performs well in most gardens, in colder areas where temperatures drop below -10 degrees, this perennial might act as semi-evergreen, dropping foliage in the winter.
As most New Zealand Sedge Grasses, Carex Comans Frosted Curls is really easy to maintain. This striking variety is considered generally pest and disease free, and it does not require routine pruning. Just remove any dead or damaged leaves during the summer to ensure this plant stays in great shape.
Offering texture, architectural value and multiple seasons of interest, Carex Comans Frosted Curls is a versatile variety that can be used as a groundcover plant, container plant or even for edging walkways. Subtle yet showy at the same time, this silvery, curled ornamental grass can be used to accentuate colourful cultivars in your garden, or, when planted en masse, for creating a textured, elegant border.
For a particularly effective year-round display in your garden, pair this cultivar with evergreen ornamental grasses such as Phormium Platts Black or Festuca Glauca.
