Carex plantaginea - Seersucker Sedge (w/ frost)

Carex plantaginea

Sedge - Seersucker

Seersucker Sedge lives up to its common name with its wide green leaves that are "puckered like Christmas ribbon", as those articulate folks at North Creek Nurseries say. It tolerates moist locations and adds winter interest because this Carex is evergreen.  It’s very quick to establish in rain gardens and on wooded slopes.

PRN Preferred:  We love the unique, seersucker texture of the foliage and the purplish inflorescences.
