Native to North America, Carex grayi can be found growing in low-lying areas near rivers, swamps, and bottomland forests. Enjoy this unusual native sedge planted at the edges of ponds and fountains, in moist areas, or in decorative containers with other moisture-loving plants. Gray’s Sedge is a clump forming plant. It reaches three feet and produces unique, pale green seed heads that resemble three-dimensional, one-inch stars. It prefers moist soil, and light shade or part sun. It can tolerate drier conditions, making it suitable for rain gardens, bioretention, or bioswales.
Carex grayi was named in honor of one of America’s leading botanists of the 19th Century, Asa Gray (1810-1888), whose extraordinary botanical collection was the foundation of the Gray Herbarium at Harvard University. Gray’s Sedge is listed as a threatened plant in Massachusetts.
