Add a splash of creamy white to your shade garden with this low-maintenance sedge. Its wide, creamy white leaves are edged with narrow green stripes—and it's the perfect complement to shade-loving perennials like ferns, hostas and astilbe. A low-growing perennial, it's a good choice for lining a shaded pathway, adding color to containers or as a ground cover. Deer tend to avoid. Carex siderostricha 'Snow Cap'
