Due to its unusual bronzy-red, fine-textured foliage, Carex 'Red Rooster,' aka New Zealand Leatherleaf Sedge, has been mistaken for being dead when seen in a nursery pot. However, nestled in container planters, hanging baskets, borders, and any sunlit garden, 'Red Rooster' adds height, unique textural interest, and color year-round.
