Silk Tassel grows wider than tall, in a fountain-like form, and the fine-textured leaves spread out over the ground. It has a soft, flowing, iridescent look and at first glance, it appears to be a sparkling, silvery green mound. The ‘glimmering’ is an illusion caused by fine-lined, deep-green borders and a silvery white stripe along the length of the foliage. Carex morrowii var. temnolepis ‘Silk Tassel’ is beautiful planted in masses in a woodland garden, or in a shady area. It is an excellent sedge to plant alongside angular plants to soften the landscape. If given sufficient moisture, Silk Tassel can tolerate sun; in shade or part shade it thrives in moist to average soil. Silk Tassel was introduced and named by Barry Yinger who brought it from Japan almost 30 years ago.
