More Information

Description Carex pennsylvanica, or Pennsylvania sedge, grows as a lush, semi-evergreen carpet in tough-to-grow spaces. The soft, arching green blades reach 8-10" long. This low maintenance and durable grass can serve as a no-mow lawn replacement, especially in areas where typical grasses struggle. Try growing it under pine or oak trees as a solution to patchy lawn growth. Shallow, dense roots bind to topsoil, making it ideal for shady slopes and erosion protection. As a native plant that thrives in shallow, moist soil, it will fit perfectly in rain, rock, or native plant gardens! Details Botanical name: Carex pennsylvanica

Height x width: 6-12" tall x 6-12" wide
Foliage color: Green
Uses: Lawn substitute, container plant, edging, erosion control, ground cover, massing, rain garden, slopes, small spaces, underplanting, waterside, woodland.
How To Grow Soil: Plants thrive in wet soil but also tolerates average soil.

Gettin sedgey with it

Pennsylvania sedge Plants arrived fast and healthy. Spaced my 5 plants about a foot each and let the games begin! The waiting game.

So far looks nice!

PA sedge plants arrived in great condition, and they look good, with very little care, on the shady slope where I planted them. The proof will be in the pudding next spring, of course, but if these are thriving, I shall order more. Thx!

Not So Happy

My problem is less with the sedge itself than it is with the lack of response from customer service. I ordered a dozen plants - eight of them are doing okay; four show no sign of life at all. I sent an inquiry and got zero response.

Hello Robin! I'm sorry to hear you haven't hear back from anyone on our team. We're happy to replace or refund those four plants that didn't survive. If you ever have any issues with your order reach out to our claims team at claims@greatgardenplants.com or give us a call at 877-447-4769 and we'll be happy to help you. We look forward to helping you!

I love the sedge and so far they are doing well!

I am looking forward to the grasses spreading over time and making the shaded areas lush and beautiful looking!
