Carex oshimensis Everest ('Fiwhite'PBR) (v)
This evergreen 'Japanese Sedge' forms a low, cascading clump of leathery, dark green leaves with a crisp white margin. The brownish flowers are insignificant. A choice plant for rock gardens, beds and containers.
Plant in any good garden soil. Trim away any winter damage in spring. Keep well watered until firmly established.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
May - July
