Carex pensylvanica - Pennsylvania Sedge

Carex pensylvanica

Sedge - Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Sedge has fine green leaves which are semi-evergreen, spreading slowly by rhizomes to form a tough groundcover in shady areas. Most effective if planted in mass. It can be used instead of grass in the shade. It is very tolerant of foot traffic as well. Mow infrequently.

PRN Preferred: Makes a really good grass substitute for shady locations.
