About Carex EverColor® ‘Everillo’

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 it from freezes.

Plant in part sun to shade for best results. However, the 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. Afterward, 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.

How to Space Your Everillo Carex

For a seamless planting, plant your Everillo Carex 1 foot apart. Space them, 1.5+ feet for gaps between plants.

    ordered 3 everillo carex, arrived in great shape in 2.5 quart containers. watered them when they arrived, but were still moist when sent. planted them the next day, look great in a spot with little sunlight, add some nice color. i’d order again from plants by mail. anonymous

    Very beautiful plant but had issues down here in zone 9B, Southwest Florida. Put several of them to line a portion of my bedding which gets sun from early morning till around noon and they started to get a very burned look to them. I needed to trim off a lot of dead ends. I ended up having to transplant them to another area of my yard which gets less sun…will see how they do.

    Ordered 5 and they arrived big and beautiful! They do exactly what I wanted which is to bring some brightness to a corner area of my yard that shades in the afternoon. I love them!

    Nice carex

  8. Linda (verified owner)

    An extensive search throughout Memphis revealed that there were no Everillo Carex to be found. Although skeptical about ordering these plants on lin, they arrived within days in perfect condition and ready to plant. The size and pricing of these plants beat I’d seen earlier in the season. I could not be happier with this investment purchase.

  9. Mariann (verified owner)

    Ordered 2 plants, small but in excellent condition

  10. Marcy Perry (verified owner)

    Every plant I have received from Plants by Mail has been excellent. The Everillo Carey is another beautiful, healthy plant.

  11. Satish (verified owner)

    This is my second purchase of Everillo. This time almost all the plants arrived looking distressed (dried, small) and almost dead. I have planted them, I am hoping the make it.

  12. Satish (verified owner)

    I love this Everillo. I was hesitant to use them as they are recommended to be used in the shade, and my yard has full sun (and we live in Texas). I tried a few of them out, and the results after a year have been super. I am now planning to purchase more to edge my entire yard. The service at PBM (especially Christy) is simply super.

    These bright, appealing Everillo arrived by mail safely and in fabulous condition. They now adorn my garden!

  14. rockfarmers (verified owner)

    These plants arrived very well packed and in great condition – they are lush and very healthy. I like these Carex so much that I have ordered two different varieties because of the light they provide in the garden.

  15. rockfarmers (verified owner)

    The plants arrived in excellent shape with soil damp and plants healthy. Excellent shipping containers; nice size plants. Good Buy!

    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!
