Carex morowii Ice Dance

Ice Dance Variegated Japanese Sedge Grass

  • Delicate appearance
  • Tough, all-exposure plant
  • Deep green blades bordered in white
  • Neat, spreading form
  • Delicate brown flower tassels in spring
At first appearance this grass looks great, but maybe a little too delicate for your landscape situation. Looks can be deceiving because its delicate appearance belies the fact that 'Ice Dance' is a tough, colorful, all-purpose, all exposure grass that demands a home in your garden. Half inch wide, deep green blades are brightly bordered in pure white and form a dense, spreading, rounded clump that is neat and well kept. Carex are native to shaded woodland areas so 'Ice Dance' performs well in shade but also thrives in partial shade or sun. Delicate brown flower tassels rise above the foliage in mid-spring adding even a little more to a plant that deserves a lot of garden play.
