Looking for a timeless addition to your water, rain or woodland garden or need to create a shady border? Ice Dance Hedge Grass delivers.

Ice Dance Sedge (Carex morrowii ‘Ice Dance’) is a superb edging plant for damp, shady spots of your yard. It works especially well in damp areas, making it a top choice for those troublesome spots in your lawn where there always seems to be too much moisture, or for planting around a spa, pool or pond to add a kick of color and fun.

This is a wonderful plant for the edge of your woodland garden path as it slips in and out of shade. Or use the Ice Dance Sedge to create a stir of excitement along a pathway by planting multiples and creating a bold border.

The Ice Dance Sedge grows naturally into a symmetrical arching mound and spreads slowly to generously cover ground with minimal effort. Showy leaves are edged in a sharp pinstripe of creamy white, creating a visual spectacle that you really have to see to believe.

People will definitely take note of this charming sedge, but it can also play a supporting role to dramatic large-leaved plants such as Empress Wu Hosta or Little Rocket Leopard Plant. Place it in front of Bleeding Heart, Coral Bells or Astilbe as a lush, yet tidy partner. The possibilities with this versatile sedge really are unlimited, which is largely the reason that the Ice Dance Sedge has become such a garden favorite.

Ice Dance Sedge can handle many of the tough landscape conditions that its counterparts cannot. It’s deer resistant and super hardy, so you need very little in the way of a green thumb to help it grow and thrive. It tolerates most soil conditions with beautiful ease and can grow in both partial sun or shade in Zones 5-9.
