Description

The luminous Everillo Carex is an outstanding new addition to the Southern Living Plant Collection! The Everillo Carex produces brilliant lime-green foliage in spring before maturing to a golden hue as the year goes on. The long-leafed foliage grows in a naturally mounding habit. Consequently, this Sedge grass excels at adding dynamic groundcover texture to any landscape or garden.

A moderate growth rate and a mature size of 12-18″ H x 12-18″ W means that trimming is completely unnecessary. Therefore, low-maintenance gardeners can rest assured that this grass won’t go wild while they aren’t looking.

The Everillo Carex is certain to brighten shady spots and add a sensational pop of color to your container gardens. A phenomenal pairing includes using the Everillo in a container with the Purple Pixie Loropetalum. The Pixie will spill over the edge, while the Carex fills the container. All you need to complete the perfect container at that point is a vertical growing thrill plant, such as the Poquito Banana. Otherwise, try it as an accent, border, or mass planting, or anywhere you need a low-growing burst of color.

Everillo Carex Care

Hardy from Zones 5-9, and down to -20°F once well established. We recommend a layer of mulch around this plant in the winter to protect from freezes.

Plant in part sun to shade for best results. However, yellow color will be more vibrant with a bit of sunlight.

Water regularly after planting until established, traditionally at least 3 months. This will allow the roots to reach deeper, which will help to ensure its long-term success. Afterwards, the Everillo only needs supplemental watering is during times of drought.

Plant Everillo in moist, well-drained garden soil. Poor drainage will lead to root rot and the expiration of the plant.

A light application of fertilizer in spring is sufficient for this grass to thrive.

Snip off old foliage in spring, if desired.

    I discovered this Everillo grass by Southern Living at Lowe’s. I was lining all my new rose beds with it. The lemon-lime color was the perfect offset to the dark mulch and the red roses. I cleaned out all the Lowe’s in my area and could only find it online. I was a little nervous about ordering live plants by mail, especially at this price. However I was pleasantly surprised. They arrived within a few days and were beautifully packaged. Very professional. I would order from this company again!
