EverColor Carex Line Expands

Concept Plants has announced that EverColor ‘Everglow’ carex as the newest addition to the eight EverColor varieties that are available in North America.

This new variety (pictured above) has a unique color pattern that changes throughout the seasons. Leaves have a unique green central stripe with margins that are orange from early autumn to late winter and cream from spring to summer. With the cream margins, plants take on a more traditional variegated look. As with all evergreen EverColor, ‘Everglow’ is easy to grow, low maintenance, and mound forming.  With its unique color, ‘Everglow’ is a fantastic cold hardy accent addition for year round garden interest.

EverColor ‘Everglow’ as well as all of the EverColor varieties can be found at Emerald Coast Growers and Skagit Gardens.

Pat FitzGerald, the breeder of EverColor from FitzGerald Nurseries in Ireland, recently received two Japanese Plant Breeders’ Rights certificates. His two varieties, Carex EverColor ‘Everlime’ and Carex EverColor ‘Eversheen,’ are now protected in Japan.

Concept Plants represents and handles royalty management for 250 new plant varieties from 150 different breeders in the North American market. Concept Plants helps  breeders with plant patents, trialing, trial and license agreements, introductions, photography, collecting royalties and more.
