Carex appalachica - Appalachian Sedge

Carex appalachica

Sedge - Appalachian

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. Grows well on slopes and is a host plant for several caterpillars. The very fine texture makes it a great filler plant.
