Carex Everest is an vigorous mound-forming evergreen ornamental grass that provides a groundcover solution for courtyard and patio areas. Its distinctive silvery-white and dark green striped foliage is a refreshing colour combination that is easy to mix with other plants. Flowers are not showy and appear late spring and summer and do not detract from the clean apperance of the plant. Carex Everest looks fantastic cascading from large planters. They are also suitable for green-wall installations. Grows approx. 45cm high x 40cm wide.
