Native to North America, this sedge is found in bottomlands and upland deciduous forests, as well as on the shores of streams, ponds and ravines. Its range lies from Wyoming to the East Coast of the US and Canada. Its narrow, fine-textured leaves grow in thick clumps, and may naturalize with short rhizomes. This sedge adapts to both dry and wet areas, including difficult dry-shade locations. Use in upper zone of rain gardens, as a lawn alternative or ground cover, or as filler in container plantings. It’s comparable to Pennsylvania Sedge (C. pensylvanica) in having fine foliage and similar cultural requirements. It’s a slower spreader and tends to have a bunchier appearance. Carex rosea is named for rosy color on one small portion of its green seedheads (rosea comes from the Latin word for pink, roseus). Rosy Sedge is also known as Curly Wood Sedge.
