In the landscape, create a stylish display by weaving sweeps of ‘Red Rooster’ among green sedges along pebble pathways. Its reddish bronze color is most rewarding contrasted with green foliage or stonework rather than the browns of mulch or bare soil. Carex buchananii ‘Red Rooster’ also brings texture to mixed plantings and it keeps its color throughout the year, making it a fine addition to fall and winter containers. ‘Red Rooster’ prefers full sun and good drainage. Insignificant blooms.
