Why Carex Evergold?

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Select an area with moist soil and dappled sun or part shade for best results. The Carex Evergold can tolerate full sun if the soil is consistently moist, but may lose some of its vibrant color in full sun.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide and about 2 inches deeper than the root ball. Place your Carex Evergold, backfill the soil and water thoroughly when planting is complete. Mulch the soil to regulate temperature and conserve water.
2. Watering: Water your Carex Evergold when the soil feels dry down to about 3 inches. You may need to water more often in hot and dry conditions, or for container-planted Carex Evergold. Generally, if you plant in a water-prone area or get several inches of rainfall a week, additional watering is unnecessary.
3. Fertilizing: You can fertilize in the spring and again in the fall with 10-5-5 or 20-10-10. Always follow the label directions.
4. Pruning: Pruning is optional, but you can cut back your Carex Evergold in late winter or early spring, before new growth appears, to remove spent foliage and control size.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
