Firefox is the ideal evergreen sedge for those tough-to-fill dry and rocky gardens. Often labeled as Leatherleaf Sedge, this grass-like plant isn't simply a "filler" perennial. Firefox displays stunning red tones throughout the year, firing up the landscape in coppery-golden hues. Excellent for borders, containers, mass plantings, and prairie applications, Firefox stands out in spring and summer, with wispy leaves that create a wonderful complement to other prairie plants like Shasta daisies and salvia. This spiky, upright sedge holds its color through the cold months, and provides Christmas-card-worthy winter interest. A deer-resistant and drought-tolerant variety that shines in four seasons. Carex buchananii 'Firefox'
