Ornamental Grass - Appalachian Sedge - 1 Gal.


Carex appalachica

If you are looking for a real texture contrast and a plant that will thrive in partial to full shade, Appalachian Sedge may be the answer. All sedges love shade but many are much stiffer and with wider bladed foliage than appalachica. Its foliage is very thin, long, and wispy, creating a much lighter texture and a flowing, almost mop-like look that is very attractive. This American Beauties sedge does not have the showy bloom that other Carex display but its somewhat insignificant bloom still provides nectar for important native insects and seed for native birds, while its flowing form is sure to add luster to any woodland setting in your landscape.
