Also known as Bronze New Zealand hair sedge, it must be said that Carex comans Bronze Form does resemble a wig, so it's no surprise to hear that the word Comans means head of hair in Latin! An evergreen perennial, the dense tussock of reddish-brown foliage cascades elegantly, bearing small inconspicuous brown flowers in summer.  

Happy in most situations, this is a tough, versatile plant, ideal for providing winter colour in the border when most plants have died back and for adding texture and movement to the garden. Alternatively, plant it in a container and position it close to hand so that you can run your fingers through its locks when passing!
