The hook sedges are closely related to Carex, with evergreen, colourful, low-growing, foliage. Ranging from green, to orange, to red, varying at different times of the year. They naturally enjoy cooler climates, so in the UK they enjoy a shady position, particularly during the hotter summer months. However, more sun should intensify the foliage colour! Good for pots. Dark brown flowers, with hook-like fruits.
