Carex socialis

Low Woodland Sedge

Low Woodland Sedge is a rhizomatous Carex which produces long narrow arching green leaves. The semi-evergreen foliage is soft and flowing, looking like a green wave in woodland locations. Carex socialis thrives in wet sites and makes an attractive setting for taller flowering shade perennials. ‘Carex King’ James Brown of New Moon Nursery points out that it “looks like Nasella but likes moist soil and part shade.” Bruce Crawford says “it’s like hair on the face of the forest.”
