'Oheme' palm sedge (Carex muskingumensis ‘Oehme’)
Genus:  Carex
With its yellow-trimmed foliage, ‘Oehme’ is truly the palm sedge with an edge. I love this species for its tropical feel and cascading texture. This North American native prefers a damp spot but tolerates many growing conditions. It’s attractive to butterflies and birds but is usually unappealing to deer. Use ‘Oehme’ to brighten a shady bed or as an ornamental approach to erosion control on a stream bank. -Justin Nichols, Fine Gardening #147 (October 2012), page 70 
Care:  Keep 'Oheme' in moist conditions and clean out the stray spent blade every now and then for a brilliant grassy display.
Propagation:  Carex can be propagated by root division.
