Evercolor Everillo Sedge - Via Morton Arboretum Fall Plant Sale - September 2020
This is the seventh in the series of plant varieties that came home from the Morton Arobretum Fall Plant sale from last week. The previous six - including some Japanese grasses, coral bells, a couple of hostas and some other shade plants can be found at the bottom of this post. I bought these bright Evercolor Sedges based on the recommendation of the staff at the Arboretum.
From the sign at the top of this post, they describe these as having a 10-12" height and 16-24" spread. But, also, they call out Full Shade - which is a key for me. The rest of the description reads:
Leaf blades are long, thin and arching, with a golden yellow hue. Adds a burst of color to garden beds, borders and containers. Mounding habit adds texture to many garden areas, especially when mass planted. Best color in locations with morning sun.

- A lacy backdrop plant - the Chocoholic Black Snakeroot - that was new to me.
- Companion plants to the All Gold forest grasses - these dark red Coral Bells (DOLCE Cherry Truffles) are very heavy on the ruffles.
- A trio of Japanese Sedges (Evercolor) that I planted adjacent to our Japanese flowering Cherry tree.
