If you have a shady damp patch in your landscape, and are looking for a graceful accent that does not require constant care, Carex morrowii ‘Ice Dance’ may be just the ticket.  Carex morrowii can take partial sun, but the color is significantly richer where it doesn’t get too much.  This makes ‘Ice Dance’ a graceful transition plant between areas of light to deep shade.  Carex morrowii is evergreen, and a quick removal of older damaged leaves in early spring will keep the foliage looking bright and attractive. and greening.
