Carex trifida "Rekohu Sunrise"

Recently bought one of the above.  Bit messy and soggy but now cleaned up and re potted in decent compost/grit until Spring.

I have 2 sites in mind........either fully south facing in a 50/50 soil ( broken up/improved  clay and imported top soil ) and grit  OR a not so clever clay/manure/grit sloping site south/east.  I know for most of my grasses that the drainage is vital but unless I am unlucky, neither intended site will be flooded.  My Carex flagelliffera will take quite a bit of damp but the other Carex often resent it.

I wondered whether anyone was growing this specific plant and found it did better in one situation or another ?




  • Thanks Verdun.......admittedly I was leaning towards the south facing site so maybe confirmed.

    I was surprised to find it listed as "new" but in fact goes back to 1992.......a lot of variation on the "striping" apparently but sounds ideal for what I wantimage

    Strictly speaking Carex is a sedge, newme.

    Some of speak strictly, others are happy to call ophthiopogon a grassimage
