Red Hook Grass

Uncinia uncinata rubra

The Red Hook Sedge is a very striking clump forming perennial with its very deep bronze-red evergreen leaves.

Dark brown flowers add to its attractions in summer. This provides a great contrast when positioned with more subdued grasses.

An added advantage is that it enjoys the shade so is useful in bringing colour to shady areas.

When shopping can be good for the planet

We've taken care to source the greenest products to sell in our shop. That includes making sure that they're not overpackaged, or that they're made from recycled goods, so that they don't add to the waste mountain.

We also watch our waste at the Eden Project, recycling as much as we can, and even turning the food left overs from our cafes into soil through a giant composter!

Watch this video on how Eden 'does waste'.
