Uncinia rubra  full sun  partial shade
Red Hook Sedge

This toasty-hued New Zealand native is highly treasured for narrow, rich mahogany blades arching up and out from its base to forge a burnished tuft warmed by reddened accents. Tiny, Bulrush-like, hooked flowers are elevated above the tidy, low growing evergreen clump that flourishes in cool moist places but sulks in excessive heat.

Massed at water’s edge or nestled in a cobalt blue container, Uncinia rubra strikes a stunning pose with Bergenia ‘Bressingham Ruby’s textural leaves or the rounded foliage of Lysimachia ‘Aurea’ as a golden counterpoint.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 12"–15" high x 15" wide. Zone 7/8.

Uncinia rubra ‘Belinda's Find’  full sun  partial shade
Uncinia rubra Belinda's Find

A real find for any gardener, this dazzling sport brandishes narrow lustrous bronze leaves with bright cherry red margins. The full-toned blades comprise a small loosely set clump that can accompany broader like-hued foliage, such as Heuchera 'Blackout', for an intriguing color echo or serve as an effective counterpoint against silver and blue-hued leaves. Celebrate 'Belinda's Find's vivacious accents in a courtyard, shady bed or favored container. (uspp#21,972)

Blooms June–August.

Size: 12" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
