This aquatic perennial wildflower has dark green grassy foliage topped with white star-shaped flowers that bloom spring through fall. This attractive perennial grass makes a nice addition along the pond edge, in a stream bed or bog garden. Also known as 'white topped sedge'.

White star-shaped flowers sit above the grass like foliage on this plant. Star Grass is best used in large numbers to create a field of white flowers around edges of the water feature. Will flower all throughout the summer, grows up two feet tall and needs partial to full sun. It thrives in wet fields, on stream banks and on the edges of marshes and is also tolerant of sands, peats, and silts. It is able to grow in soils with a variable pH (4.6-7.8); making ideal for otherwise unsuitable or changing growing conditions.

Star Grass (Dichromena Colorata) or White Star Sedge, is a member of the sedge family, native to the coasts of Virginia through Florida. Foliage consists of narrow blades of green, ornamental grass that is adorned with lovely, star-shaped, white bracts, that appear as flowers atop the grass in summer until fall.
