Sedge

A diverse genus comprised of nearly 1000 species, most Carex originate in the moist habitats of temperate climates. Our graceful selections are easy to grow and promise to soften those hard edges in your garden.

Carex pensylvanica partial shade  shade lover  new plant

Wish you had a lush green no-mow carpet that can tackle dry conditions and requires little care? This low growing, fine textured Sedge may be just what you’re looking for. Slowly spreading by reddish brown rhizomes, C. pensylvanica makes a soft-looking fountain-like ground cover with delicate semievergreen blades plus white-edged purple and brown thimble-shaped inflorescences. Indigenous to the thickets and oak inhabited woodlands of eastern and central North America, Oak Sedge prospers in well-drained shady expanses, such as underneath deciduous trees and large perennials, or as a lawn substitute, where there’s not much foot traffic.

Size: 6"–12" high x 8"–15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
