Catlin Sedge

Carex

Sedge

A diverse genus comprised of nearly 1000 species, most Carex originate in the moist habitats of temperate climates. Easily grown, our winning selections produce a variety of different colored leaves that promise to soften those sharp edges in your garden. 

Carex texensis (G-0571)

Each 8.25

AVAILABLE SPRING 2021

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. 

Blooms April–May

Size: 5" – 12" high x 12" – 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
