Description

Carex 'Pamira' is a charming ornamental grass admired for its graceful appearance and versatility in garden design. This semi-evergreen perennial forms neat clumps of narrow, arching foliage that remains attractive year-round. The slender, dark green leaves provide a lush backdrop for other garden plants, making 'Pamira' an excellent choice for edging borders or filling in gaps in mixed plantings. Growing to a height of about 30-40 cm, Carex 'Pamira' is well-suited for both sun and partial shade conditions. It thrives in moist, well-drained soil but can tolerate periods of drought once established. Its adaptability and low maintenance needs make it ideal for various garden styles, from formal landscapes to naturalistic settings. In late Spring, 'Pamira' produces inconspicuous flowers that add subtle interest, while its dense foliage provides cover for ground-dwelling wildlife. This grass is particularly effective when mass-planted as a ground cover or used in containers and rock gardens to add texture and depth. Our nursery values Carex 'Pamira' for its reliability, its attractive foliage, and ease of cultivation, making it a favourite among gardeners looking to enhance their garden spaces with a touch of greenery.

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. Optimal planting time is during the cool seasons of Spring or Autumn, but avoiding planting in frosts. Ensure well-drained soil, enriched with organic matter for this ornamental grass to thrive. 'Pamira' adds a touch of interest with its distinctive foliage. With these planting considerations, you can establish a resilient and appealing plant in your garden.

Watering & Feeding

Nurturing the captivating Carex 'Pamira' involves a balanced approach to watering and feeding. Keep the soil consistently moist, particularly during dry spells, to support optimal growth. While this ornamental grass is relatively low-maintenance, occasional feeding with a balanced fertiliser in early Spring enhances its overall health and vibrancy. By embracing this thoughtful watering and feeding routine, you ensure that your Carex continues to provide your garden with its unique foliage, adding a touch of interest and texture to your outdoor space.

General Care

Caring for Carex 'Pamira' is a straightforward endeavour. We recommend keeping the plant's surroundings tidy by removing any dead or yellowing leaves, promoting its health and vigour. This resilient grass is generally disease and pest-resistant, minimising the need for extensive intervention. If needed, a light trim after the growing season will refresh its appearance. Embracing a simple care routine ensures your Carex remains a hassle-free and visually striking addition to your garden.
