Carex testacea


Carex testacea is a hardy native sedge with a distinctive rich orange and green colouring and with arching, rather wide-spreading foliage. It has very long seed head stems. It grows to a height of 0.5 m. It is found throughout New Zealand in lowland to montane forests, grasslands and sand dunes. It is sold by nurseries and is probably the most popular native grass used for amenity planting.
