The habit and form is similar to the popular 'Banana Boat' Sedge, except sporting a pristine white color. This pale creeping broad-leaved Sedge looks albino, but it is surprisingly robust and sun-tolerant, creating a rare snow-white accent for the summer garden!

The very broad leaves (some of the widest in the family!) open when the weather warms up in spring, making it a fine choice for underplanting spring-blooming bulbs such as Daffodils and Tulips, or for playing in shady/woodland gardens with Brunnera, Hosta, or Ferns.

Reaching just about 6 inches high and spreading a foot wide rather quickly, this clumper is a good choice for a naturalizing groundcover. Use it to edge paths, carpet the waterside (it loves evenly moist soil, and drying out is its biggest problem), or fill in areas of dense shade where little else has been happy. It also appreciates rich soil with a lot of organic matter in it. Deer leave it alone, and it requires little maintenance. Before new growth starts in the spring, you can trim back the old foliage to create a tidy appearance.

'Snow Cap' offers small, rather unexciting blooms in late spring, but its real merit is the crisp foliage. Let it naturalize in your garden or use it in containers. In early spring or early fall you can divide the clump to speed up the naturalizing process. Very adaptable, all it asks for is consistent moisture. 1 Quart. Zones 5 to 9.
