"Known as "New Zealand Hair Sedge," the fine chocolate covered, graceful grass-like foliage on Carex Cappucchino is the perfect complement for perennials and shrubs with bold foliage. It is gracefully arching and forms an attractive mound. It's a wonderful accent plant in containers and borders." - Ciscoe Morris
