Carex 'Ice Dance' Characteristics
Carex 'Ice Dance' has stiff, grass-like leaves with green centers and white edges. Unlike other sedges, 'Ice Dance' grows in plumes, making it an effective groundcover. It blooms insignificant, small brown flowers.
Like most sedges, 'Ice Dance' grow best in moist-to-wet soil with full shade. They can grow in part-sun conditions if given enough water, but will not tolerate excessive heat or direct sunlight. (In these instances, Liriope make a good full-sun alternative.)
Because 'Ice Dance' prefer full shade, this is a great option in areas near structures that do not get day-long sunlight. It also works well as an understory plant in larger landscapes.
This is a great companion plant in large gardens, working effectively as a border planting or groundcover. They can also be used in lieu of mulch in no-mulch landscapes where weed suppression is desired.
