Blue Wood 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.
Indigenous to the central and southeastern U.S., this handsome, arching sedge sprouts low, slow-spreading evergreen clumps of narrow, glaucous blue-green leaves. Heightened by creased parallel veins and slender golden-brown seed heads, the amenable small-sized habit appreciates a late winter cutback plus shady moist abodes, yet thrives in average soil and even tolerates dry conditions. Blue Wood Sedge can flank a stream bed, edge a pathway or be utilized as a deer-resistant ground cover for wooded gardens.
Size: 6" – 10" high x 6" – 12" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
