Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: An exceptionally ornamental sedge originating from one of my collections on that beloved mountain that I keep on wittering on about, Fansipan in the very north of Vietnam. For us it has formed tight tussocks, 40-50cm tall of broad (probably very for a sedge) at 5cm, pleated or conspicuously veined leaves, spreading to around 60cm (2ft) wide since 2007. Undoubtedly it will be declared as one of the most ornamental of its genus, as not only is the foliage ornamental, but the pink inflorescences which are retained for months are, I suspect as good as it gets. Best grown in a freely drained soil with some moisture retention in either sun or shade.
