Porcupine Sedge (Scirpus Zebrinus)

This highly ornamental sedge has 0.8 – 1.5 m tall green stems which are horizontally banded with white stripes resembling porcupine quills, making a bold statement in any watergarden! The stems are topped with small clusters of inconspicuous, brown spikes. Porcupine sedge grows best in moist soil to shallow water no more than 15 cm deep. The variegation is most pronounced on new growth so fertilize regularly to maintain and grow in full sun. Cut back during winter dormancy and leave pot in pond.
