Leatherleaf Sedge

Carex Bronco grows in an arching habit with bronze/brown foliage for accent in beds or containers. It is widely used in containers and in landscaping mixed with colorful bedding plants. Since it is a member of the Sedge, it is a perennial that maintains its color in warmer climates. In colder climates, the leaves will whither in Fall and Winter months. The slender grassy leaves grow in a thick clump and curl over to make a unique spray of color resembling a fountain. Delicate flowers appear atop tiny stems in Mid-Summer. They are fantastic in containers behind glorious mounds of color or as a center, surrounded by color. Whatever your choice, this plant is very easy to please.

& Maintenance Tips

Bronco tolerates up to drought conditions as well as prospering in partial sun. It prefers to be in moist, well-drained soil. In the colder climates, the brown foliage will need to be cleared for the new foliage to begin emerging in the Spring.
