Carex Elata 'Aurea' (Bowles Golden Sedge) (carex elata)

Bought this lovely sedge as a tiny plant back in spring from Harrogate flower show its grown soooo much and been potted on several times since then, still haven't decided where to put it so its in a pot by my front door with several other grasses, seems to be happy there :-)

Bought one about a month ago, love it, so bright, and does not grow too large, it has gone in our grass border likes damp so I gather?

Mine started off as small as yours,Simbad..a long time ago.I now have clumps of it everywhere..in the gravel,and to fill gaps in borders..seems to need no special treatment,and only gets watered if and when I remember ! ...great for winter colour,and very hardy..I love it :o)

Thanks everyone :-), I first spotted this on here, can't remember whos picture, probably yours Bloomer :-), and so when I saw a stall selling grasses at Harrogate had to search it out :-)
Yes I read it likes moisture Dd so still looking for the perfect spot but if its unfussy Bloomer then it can go in my border I'm revamping in the autumn, good to know it increases well I wouldn't mind having clumps of this everywhere :-)
Suey I do like grasses and do have quite a few now, these seed in the cracks in the pavement and I can't resist potting them up :-))
Malvern in a few weeks so no putting yummy plants on here anyone, I need plant supports and boring stuff,lol.
