Native to North America, Carex grayi is a grass-like wildflower that forms an upright clump of leathery, fresh, green leaves. Its subtle flowers are followed by the most unusual showy, star-shaped seed pods that add an interesting touch to flower arrangements and will be a poolside talking point. It is a deciduous grass that thrives at moist borders or at watersides.

Available as 3L plant.
