PLANT OF THE MONTH

Bowles golden sedge

EDP Norfolk - - Garden Guide -

This beau­ti­ful golden sedge is one of the many plants named af­ter the hor­ti­cul­tur­ist and writer EA Bowles, who dis­cov­ered it grow­ing wild in Norfolk in the late 19th cen­tury. In spring it pro­duces spikes of brown feath­ery flow­ers along with its vi­brant yel­low leaves which have a thin green edge. They form an arch­ing clump around 60cm high and wide. It’s ideal for damp or wet sites in the garden grown in full sun or par­tial shade; it also looks good grown in a con­tainer or in con­junc­tion with a wa­ter fea­ture.
