Carex pensylvanica, Pennsylvania Sedge
A fantastic Missouri native, Pennsylvania Sedge, Carex pensylvanica, makes a great ground cover in dry shady spots. Wispy bright green blades, 6-12″ tall, form a dense ground cover that is difficult for weeds to grow through. Excellent under trees, especially Oaks, this semi-evergreen Sedge is ideal for naturalizing and for planting in areas where lawn grass is difficult to establish. Its fine texture and fountaining habit give this sedge a soft appearance that is lovely for bordering shade perennial gardens, or on its own as a shade lawn.
Also known as Oak Sedge.
Plant in full shade to part shade. Very easy to grow. Cut back once a year in late winter.
