Summary

With stunning silvery blue, grass-like foliage, Carex laxiculmis ‘Hobb’ (Bunny Blue™) is a versatile evergreen sedge that can be used along a border edge or as a groundcover. Reaching a mature height of only 12”, it slowly spreads to form tidy clumps. Bunny Blue™ spreading sedge grows best in average soil that is evenly moist but well-drained. It prefers shade, but will tolerate some sun with sufficient water. Though evergreen, plan to cut back the foliage in late winter to encourage fresh growth. The tiny, yellow flowers emerge in late spring but are not highly ornamental. Bunny Blue™ spreading sedge provides a pleasing contrast to plants such as Heuchera americana, Geum lobatum and Tiarella cordifolia.
