Carex appalachica

Appalachian Sedge

Appalachian Sedge is a fine-textured green clump-forming Carex that performs really well in very shady dry woodlands. The habit is arching, like a green fountain, so Appalachian Sedge is particularly attractive in mixed shade containers.  This cool-season sedge looks its best in the spring and fall, and its leaves that turn a nice straw color during the winter.  Grows well on slopes and is a host plant for several caterpillars. The very fine texture makes it a great filler plant.
