Carex 'Feather Falls™'—commonly called Variegated Sedge 'Feather Falls', and Feather Falls Sedge—is an extremely trendy and beautiful cold-hardy variety of ornamental grass (it's technically a sedge since its leaves are triangular, but it's frequently referred to as an "ornamental grass").
Feather Falls Variegated Sedge is relatively new to the American plant space, and it's quickly becoming a favorite! Growers love it for its vigor, eye-catching colors, and its bold, cascading, fountain-like, arching growth habit!
Carex 'Feather Falls™' was originally bred in Europe as a cross of Carex hybrida parents.
Absolutely excellent as a container pot for garden accents, walkways, patios, and covered spaces (due to its shade tolerance)!
Great for ground planting for use as a border plant! Space 18" apart for use as a tall groundcover! Plant on steep banks for erosion control! Plant groups of 3 or more 3' - 6' apart to create an attractive landscaping bed!
Tolerant of sun and shade more than most other sedges!
Variegated Sedge Care
Carex 'Feather Falls™' is extremely low maintenance and easy to care for.
Fertilizations will accelerate growth and keep your plant well fed. We suggest using our slow release fertilizer, or something similiar.
Water regularly after planting and throughout its first year of establishment, or in periods of drought. This plant is not considered drought tolerant, and its ideal soil is moist, rich, and well draining.
It may be cut back it it becomes too large, or falls over. It's suggested to cut back this sedge to the ground in late winter or early spring. Leave at least 2" of foliage when cutting back.
Feather Falls Sedge does best when grown in a partially shaded area (4-6 hours of sunlight a day), although we've heard success stories of growth in full sun areas. In our experience, northern growers will have better luck in sunnier locations, and southern growers will have better luck in shadier locations. Southern growers should not place this plant in an area that gets strong, afternoon sun.
