Prairie Fire Sedge creates a fiery display of color when planted in ground covering sweeps. Its upright, slender, green-bronze foliage is tipped with orange highlights. In full sun this deep orange coloring intensifies, creating a dramatic look that blends well with hot-colored perennials and yellow-green shrubs. Coloring persists through most of the winter in warmer climates. This New Zealand native does best in moist, well-drained soil, but will adapt to drier conditions once established. Previously listed as hardy to Zone 5, we’ve pulled it back to Zone 6 based on feedback from customers. Its size and upright habit make a great focal point in mixed containers. Part of the ColorGrass® series, ‘Prairie Fire’ is a seed selection of Carex testacea.
