Carex testacea - Grasses

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

Carex testacea
Carex Testacea is a native grass with a distinctive rich orange and green colouring and a weeping form. It is hardy to drought and salt winds and needs an open situation in full sun to maintain its colour. This grass has very long seed head stems with an arching, rather wide-spreading foliage. Carex testacea is probably the most popular native grass used in amenity planting. It is found throughout New Zealand in lowland to montane forests, grasslands and sand dunes. In Auckland it is naturally found on the East Coast only. Carex raotest is naturally found on the West Coast of Auckland. Plant in mass for effect.H 40cm x W 40cm
