Fast-growing, clumping evergreen sedge with tall, narrow stems to 6-10′ tall. Valued for their striking form and silhouette, this humidity and moisture-loving species features slender, dark-green stems topped with fine, thread-like, bright-green leaves that together form a loose pom-pom-like shape. A popular choice for pool or pond areas, narrow spaces, or even as a submerged water garden specimen. Cut foliage makes a dramatic accent in mixed flower arrangements. Thrives in a rich, moist soil and prefers a sun to partial shade exposure.
