Why plant Blue Zinger Sedge?
Blue, blue, beautiful blue! Blue Zinger Sedge paints a soothing picture with its icy blue foliage. The frosty blue color has a calming effect when you look at it, like gazing at a summer sky or a clear blue lake. It’s also an easy mixer with other colors in the garden, such as green, purple, or yellow foliage, or pink, white, or orange flowers. This compact, fine-textured Fringe can be grown in masse as a ground-cover, where it will flow through the landscape like a lazy blue river. You can also grow it in the rock garden or add it to a container planting for a heavenly blue accent.
There are nearly one thousand species of Sedges that exist all around the world in a wonderful array of colors, shapes, and forms. This particular species, Blue Sedge, is native to moist areas of the Mediterranean. Blue Zinger is a special selection of Blue Sedge that was introduced by Emerald Coast Growers of Pensacola, Florida. It was singled out primarily for its extra-bright blue foliage, but it differs from the species in a couple of other ways as well. It’s a bit taller than the average Blue Sedge, and it’s also more of a clumper (slower to spread) than other Blue Sedges.

How To Plant Blue Zinger Sedge
Plant Blue Zinger Sedge in full sun or part shade. It will be lushest with regular water, but unlike many Sedges, this one can withstand dry periods once it’s established, and it will still look respectable. Blue Sedge is native to alkaline soils, but is adaptable to range of pH levels. It is also moderately salt tolerant.
How To Water
Blue Zinger's prefer to be kept rather moist and evenly watered. Once this plant has become established, they can be considered drought tolerant.
How To Fertilize
Fertilize your Blue Zinger Sedge with our Elements Starter Plant Food during the springtime for that extra boost of growth. After that, you won't need to fertilize again!
How To Prune
Blue Zinger is evergreen in mild winters, so you may not need to cut it back in the late winter. If the foliage is in good shape, you can leave it alone; otherwise trim plants back before new growth emerges. Prune back your sedge about two inches before every spring before the new growth emerges.
