Little was it known in 2009 when a newly developed variegated sedge, what would become Everest, was introduced that EverColor would become well known and be in gardens all over the world.

A decade later, EverColor Carex is approaching 2 million sold. Developed by Irish breeder Pat Fitzgerald, these are the “little grasses that could,” showing up in an array of uses from Japan to the Netherlands, the United States to Australia. EverColor plants have been called to action for their bright color and fortitude in the face of tough conditions.

EverColor ‘Everglow’ is the newest addition to the EverColor family. It earned the gold medal at Plantarium 2018. Its unique color pattern changes throughout the seasons. The green central stripe has margins that are orange from early autumn to late winter and cream from spring to summer.
