Woodland Sedge is a rhizomatous perennial sedge that matures into compact mounded clumps. The shiny deep green foliage is evergreen and up to 8” long. In late spring, attractive green flower spikes are displayed above the leaves. Plants occur in part sun to part shade in moist to mesic soils. This sedge has excellent landscape potential as a ground cover for woodlands or shade gardens.
Woodland Sedge is a useful Groundcover for a Shade Garden and is especially effective when Grouped or Massed with spring wildflowers, low-growing bulbs, or ferns. The unique leaf texture allows this sedge to serve as an eye-catching Accent. Plants provide Erosion Control and Winter Interest and are appropriate for Deer Resistant Plantings, Low Maintenance Plantings, Restoration Projects, and Wildlife Gardens.
This sedge is an excellent native substitute for the popular Asian groundcovers Liriope muscari and Ophiopogon japonicus.
