As sedges go, this one is quite coarse. It was rather uninspiring for the first few years of its life, and still is not a stunner - but now at least the foliage is dense enough to make a statement (it was very sparse in its earlier years). The flowers/seedheads might merit the designation "interesting". In all, a plant I'll keep around, but probably not in the high-rent area in the middle of our side garden, where it lives now.
