Pennsylvania Sedge has narrow, low-growing foliage that forms a lush green carpet. Our most popular native sedge, it makes a fine lawn alternative or ground cover. It spreads slowly by rhizomes and is most effective when planted in masses. Carex pensylvanica is perfect for woodland gardens or shady areas; however, it doesn’t mind being planted in sun in cooler climates if it gets sufficient moisture. This petite, eight-inch beauty flowers in May. Carex pensylvanica is a great pollinator plant, supporting several caterpillar species. In the wild, it provides shelter and nesting material for birds. It is semi-evergreen and drought tolerant once established. This graceful little sedge is found in meadows or forest floors from Maine to Alabama and into the Dakotas.
