Evergreen fine textured sedge that grows in a mounded clump 10″ to 16″ tall and wide. It is native to dry woods and rocky slopes throughout Honshu Island, Japan. It is a mutation of Carex oshimensis `Evergold` found in Ireland in 2007. ‘Everoro’ is a compact, clump-forming, evergreen sedge with golden yellow leaf centers and wide, dark green margins.
Pronunciation: KAR-eks oh-shih-MEN-sis
Carex oshimensis is native to Japan.
Foliage color is richer in part shade than in sun. Plants tend to languish in full shade. Plants thrive in moist soils, but also perform well in average garden soils, with better tolerance for periods of dryness than most sedges have. Plants generally dislike hot and humid summer climates.
Propagate through rhizome division in spring.
