Carex albicans - White-tinged Sedge from Pleasant Run Nursery

Carex albicans

Sedge - White-tinged

White-tinged Sedge is a native clump-forming Carex with arching thread-like foliage. The fine texture of Carex albicans makes it an excellent lawn substitute for shady locations with dry to moist soil conditions. The insignificant scaly flower spikes emerge in May and are interesting but not showy. Since Carex albicans self-seeds, it can make an effective groundcover for erosion control. Intermingle with other shade loving flowering perennials.
