Two years of steady growth with a wonderful weeping habit. I did trim the ends this fall when they tangled into unattractive knots. No other maintenance needed.

This sedge was "evergreen" in our cold Oregon winter, completely unfazed by the wet snow and freezes. I now want to plant them in compositions for winter interest specifically! Also a very tactile plant, nice to brush up against.
