Carex flacca ‘Burton’s Blue’
at Digging Dog

Carex

Sedge

A diverse genus comprised of nearly 1000 species, most Carex originate in the moist habitats of temperate climates. Our graceful selections are easy to grow and promise to soften those hard edges in your garden.

Carex flacca ‘Burton’s Blue’ full sun  partial shade

Reminiscent of Dianthus leaves and noticeably broader than the species, the eye-catching ¾ in. wide ultra-blue blades grow in an upward arching fashion. ‘Burton’s Blue’ produces small purple-black flowers atop its galvanizing more coarsely textured foundation that makes an ideal well-mannered evergreen addition for your rock garden or border. Staged in sweeps, as a walkway edging or tucked between boulders, this adaptable slow spreading selection abides full sun, part shade, drought, alkaline soil and even some salinity.

Size: 12"–20" high x 10"–15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
