The bold texture of this Carex never ceases to amaze. The striking feature of C. grayii is the chestnut-sized, green flowered spiked orb which resembles the mace, a medieval weapon. The plant turns golden in the autumn. A good choice for a pond edge and for restoration plantings. Named for the historic botanist, Asa Gray. One of the most popular sedges being used by pond gardeners.
