Red Rooster Sedge


This is an eye-catching, useful selection of a sedge native to New Zealand. The long, slender leaves grow in a dense, stiff, upright-to-fanlike clump. They are orange-brown to red-brown, giving the plant a dried look though it is growing actively. Though it much resembles an ornamental grass, it comes from a different family all together, and like many of its fellow sedges, is more versatile than grasses, being tolerant of both full sun and partial sun and moist to almost-wet soils. The tiny flowers appear in clusters atop thin stems in mid-summer. The leaves are evergreen in warm climates, perennial in colder climates, where they wither and brown in autumn. Remove them in winter to make way for the new leaves in spring.

Grow this plant in sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil. Use it for its contrasts of color, texture and habit in containers, mixed beds and mixed borders. Or plant it as edging for walkways, or massed as a groundcover.



USDA Hardiness Zone 6 (with protection) - 11



Sun Exposure: Full Sun, Partial Sun


Mature Height: 20"-30"

Sedge is a cool-season grass. Where temperatures get colder than zero degrees F, the plants should be treated as annuals. Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring. It should not be expected to live through the winter and begin growing again in the spring.

In areas where winter temperatures remain above zero degrees it should be considered a perennial and the following information should be useful:

 Cool-season grasses put on most of their growth in spring before temperatures begin exceeding 75 degrees Fahrenheit and in the fall when temperatures cool down. They generally maintain good color through the summer but won't grow much when it is hot.
Cut back cool season grasses in very early spring.

Cool season grasses tend to look good even as the weather cools. Leave their foliage in place until spring and then as soon as the snow is gone cut them back. Leave about 1/3 of the plant in place. Trimming cool season grasses too harshly can irreparably harm the plant.

Divide cool season grasses in spring or early fall. Cool season grasses are actively growing in spring and fall. These grasses can be transplanted at either time of the year but early spring is probably the best time to divide.
