Cool season. Responds well to being cut back.It is very well-suited for moist or wet areas, as it thrives in up to three inches of water. This Carex can tolerate slightly drier soils if it is planted in the shade. However, its color is most spectacular when planted in full sun and moist to wet soil similar to its native habitat. The fine-textured leaves of Bowles Golden Sedge are striped sporadically with bright green lines, which will turn lime green when planted in shade.
