Planting Conditions

Creating a unique display with Carex begins with a little mindful planting. We advise choosing a location that receives sun to partial shade, offering protection from intense sunlight.

Nurturing the captivating Carex 'Ice Dance' involves a balanced approach to watering and feeding. Keep the soil consistently moist, particularly during dry spells, to support optimal growth.
