More Information

Description Even in the heat of the summer, Blue Zinger sedge (Carex flacca) will keep your garden looking cool. The thin, arching foliage adds refreshing blue hues as it spreads through the landscape.  It spreads by underground stolons to form a dense blue colony in your landscape for over three seasons. In warmer climates, it stays evergreen. This versatile grass-like plant, officially known as a sedge, thrives in a wide range of soil types and exposures. It's a practical choice for areas where other plants fail. It's easy to maintain, pest-free, and winter hardy, making it perfect for beginner gardeners! Details   Botanical name: Carex flacca 'Blue Zinger'
Common name: Blue sedge, caralluma, mace sedge
Zone: 5 - 8
Sun exposure: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 8-16" x 12-24"
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Blue-gray
Season of interest: Year-round
Uses: Accent, Container, Edging, Erosion control, Ground cover, Massing, Rain garden, Slopes, Small spaces, Under planting, Waterside, Woodland
How To Grow Soil: Adaptable to a wide range of soils. Drought tolerant once established.
Light: Best growth occurs in part-sun (4-6 hours sun), but the plant will grow in shade (< 4 hours sun).
Water: Prefers even moisture.
Spacing: 12-24 inches.
Fertilizing: Needs very little. On poor soil, a light scattering of time-release fertilizer in spring should be all that is needed.
Winterizing: No special care. It holds its color over winter, so wait until early spring to cut back the foliage.
Maintenance & pruning: Can divide clumps every few years. Cut foliage to the ground in early spring before new growth occurs.

The plant is shipped in quart size and becomes established as soon as planted. It completes a rock garden of ground covers.

Healthy plants! Outstanding shipping!!

This is my second order of Blue Zinger sedge. The plants in my first order this past spring were so healthy and shipped in such wonderful packaging that I didn’t hesitate to order some more. The plants are the healthiest and most robust of any online-order plants I’ve ever received. And I am terribly impressed with how Great Garden Plants packages its plants for shipping: 1) very green concept; and 2) there’s no way plants are going to arrive damaged in their special packing boxes. This nursery is at the top of my list for future online plant orders.
