I’ve promised a post about my new Berkeley sedge (Carex divulsa) lawn, but it’s filling in so slowly that I keep putting it off, waiting for better “after” pics. I swear I will post all about it this fall. But in honor of Foliage Follow-Up, here’s a teaser photo. I planted Berkeley sedge specifically for its tousled, meadowy texture, and I love that it’s finally getting thicker.
In the foreground there’s more good, leafy texture with giant mullein (Verbascum thapsus) and wooly stemodia (Stemodia lanata).
Please join me in posting about your lovely leaves of August for Foliage Follow-Up, a way to remind ourselves of the importance of foliage in the garden on the day after Bloom Day. Leave your link to your Foliage Follow-Up post in a comment. I really appreciate it if you’ll also include a link to this post in your own post (sharing link love!). If you can’t post so soon after Bloom Day, no worries. Just leave your link when you get to it.
