Have grown this carex in 20" pots outdoors from 4" starters and it has done well for 2 years. Survived below freezing winters and hot upper 90's in summer. Ready to divide and make more now. Makes wonderful contrast to the usual perennials.

Slow grower but beautiful color. This plant was left outside in a pot and survived the winter. I have it in the ground now and must be hardy at least 6b.
