at Digging Dog
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.
Sauntering throughout open woodlands and dry sandy meadows from New York to Georgia and west to Nebraska and Texas, this resourceful evergreen Carex serves up small flowing mat-like clumps characterized by thin, wispy dark green leaves plus petite green flower spikes. A long-lived undemanding grass, Catlin Sedge abates erosion, prefers dappled sunlight, tolerates moist or dry conditions and makes a water-wise lawn alternative that abides minimal foot traffic and rarely needs mowing. It can spread between stepping stones, carpet forest margins and accompany bonsai specimens or Japanese Maples in containers.
Size: 5"–12" high x 12"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
