Carex berggrenii

Carex berggrenii

The tiniest sedge I've ever seen, forming wee itsy bitsy little grass-like tufts only an inch tall. Even cooler, this is one of the bronze sedges that looks, at first glance, like it isn't alive at all. I think it is as cool as hell. People who object to plants that look dead will probably be less thrilled. So tiny and so brown that you really must grow it in a trough or fairy garden (would be perfect for a miniature Halloween theme...) for it to be noticed at all.____ZONE 6

Carex caryophylla 'The Beatles'

Carex caryophylla 'The Beatles'

A small sedge with slightly curled leaves that give a clump and over-all rumpled appearance. Not sure what exactly makes it Beatle-like, doesn't get high with a little help from its friends or wanna hold your hand as far as I can tell. Happy in shade, where the grassy look contrasts well with hostas. Zone 5

Carex plantaginea

Carex plantaginea

A beautiful native sedge I saw often hiking in the woods as a child. Leaves are broad for a sedge, just over an inch wide, with a distinctive puckered pattern running down their length. Flowers in spring are odd little dark spikes that are interesting but not exactly showy. Really, this thing is all about the foliage. A little less than a foot tall and roughly as wide, happy in deciduous woodland conditions. Lovely and happy with ferns and hostas. Zone 4

Carex siderosticha 'Banana Boat'

Carex siderosticha 'Banana Boat'

Banana Boat? Really? What is that, some sort of nudist gay cruise? Oh... right. Banana because of the yellow variegation. And boat because? I've no idea... But name aside, this is spectacular plant. Broad, grass-like leaves striped down the center with screaming yellow. Gorgeous, carefree plant for a shade garden, a foot or so tall and wide, lovely grassy-like appearance, but much bolder color and texture than hakonechloa. Plant this with a blue leaved hosta and you'll be a very happy gardener indeed.- Joseph Zone 5

Carex siderosticha "Snow Cap"

Carex siderosticha "Snow Cap"

This is a stunningly gorgeous thing, like the already wonderful 'Banana Boat' but with brilliantly white variegation on the leaf centers. Striking and distinctive, and will light up a shady garden. Easy to grow in average conditions in the shade, though the leaf tips will tend to brown a bit if it gets to dry. Roughly a foot tall and wide, hardy to zone 5.

Caltha palustris v polypetala of Gardens

Caltha palustris v polypetala of Gardens

Caltha palustris v polypetala of gardens, Marsh Marigolds are perfect for a wet spot or the bank of a garden stream; Caltha will even grow in standing water. It forms large clumps of glossy leaves, which are obscured in spring by the myriads of 2" shining yellow buttercup flowers that scream for a macro lens. I put one in a pond made from a sunken bathtub and over the years, it has filled the tub displacing everything. Viewed from a distance in this dry rock garden setting it is a startling sight, an Adonis gone mad. Variety polypetala is not double but much larger flowered than the regular wildtype.____ZONE 5
