Carex hachijoensis ‘Evergold’

Is a really nice and tidy two toned grass. I like that it stays green pretty much all winter long. In the spring when the plants start to wake up, ‘Evergold’ is there and ready for Spring. I have used Carex ‘Evergold’ in several places in my gardens. In the front landscape I have it planted in lava rock in front of my larger containers, it compliments nicely with all the annuals . In the backyard gardens I have it mixed in with the Heuchera and Heucherellas in a part shade location.  The foliage is amazing mixed in with the burgundy and purple leaves of the Heuchera. Take a look…

(Sedge) Carex ‘Evergold’ is a handsome semi-evergreen sedge with creamy-yellow and green variegated leaves. Compact mounding habit makes this an excellent choice for the front of the border. ‘Evergold’ prefers light shade. Very attractive foliage plant & Deer resistant!


Woodside Gold

You may take a look at the photo and wonder “what is so great about this plant”. Well I will tell you. This Columbine is great for early spring color. Not only does it flower early but it has FANTASTIC foliage color. From my house window about 200 foot away, this was one of the first plants that stood out in my garden. The bright lime green foliage! I first thought it was a Heuchera (Coral Bells), but when I walked out back I found it was this little beauty. The bonus is the light pink through deep pink flowers that appear.
