Carex General Information

Carex is a huge genus of more than 1,500 species of perennials with triangular, grass-like stems. Flowerheads develop on panicles of short spikes. Suited to many sites, Sedge will tolerate wet and/or shade well. Excellent in foreground or as an edger. Spreads slowly. Grass-like, colorful foliage is often brightly hued or variegated. Ornamental grasses are restricted from Oregon.

Carex Plant Care

Sedge prefers a moist, well-drained soil with part shade. Very easy to maintain, Carex requires little if any feeding and in early spring, cut back by 1/3 or simply tease out dead blades to spruce up appearance. Division is best done in the spring.
