Common names: Fine Wood Sedge
Hardy to zones: 2 – 5
This fine textured clumper is more tolerant than most species of Carex of dry soil conditions, naturally occuring at dry high spots amongst mature Maple, Oak and Beech forests. Narrow, fine textured foliage with bright light green color. It is much more trouble free and long lived here in the hot piedmont than the very similar looking C appalachica. Happy in bright to deeply shaded areas and it combines well with Ginger, Ferns and other well-drained loving woodland plants.
