Carex Prairie Fire is an outstanding specimen plant which is ideal for adding different colours and textures to your garden
A very ornamental grass, the attractive green bronze, fine leaved foliage erupts into colour like burning embers, quickly becoming established in borders or containers- In late summer, panicles of rosy flowers appear just above the foliage.
Carex adapts to most soil types, they are excellent used to give texture in the perennial garden or as a small-scale ground cover. The foliage is outstanding planted with silver foliage plants, brightly coloured flowers or variegated grasses.
Plant in full sun, but keep well-watered during hot weather. Cut back to 10cm (4”) in early spring as new growth appears.
Cut back old foliage to 10cm (4”) in spring as new growth appears in the centres of plants.
Feed in summer with single dressing of a dilute general fertiliser. Even without an annual feed, most grasses will put on a first-rate show. The more nitrogen grasses receive the greener and further they'll grow. Do not over do it…their spreading habit is fine in a field, but in a garden they may become too lush and the flower quality may suffer.
