Cherokee Sedge (Carex cherokeensis)


Cherokee Sedge: Carex cherokeensis, or Cherokee sedge, is a beautiful, perennial, clumping ornamental plant. It will grow best in a mix of sun and shade in the moderately mild USDA plant hardiness zones.


Cherokee sedge is a North American native species, performing well from the middle south to northern Florida and across the southern Great Plains regions. It needs at least six hours of filtered sunshine each day. However, it can tolerate full morning sun and afternoon shade.


This sedge species loves moisture but does not like its roots to stay moist. However, it can also withstand short drought spells and recover quickly.


Cherokee Sedge Is a Self-Sufficient Plant


If you choose an ideal location and give your Cherokee sedge a good start, it will become a self-sufficient and undemanding ornamental grass within a season or two.


The most crucial factor is site selection. As mentioned, it likes long hours of filtered sunshine. It also likes well-amended, fertile soil, particularly if you can add a generous helping of mulch or leaves to the ground when you plant it. A light layer of additional hardwood mulch in the fall protects the roots, especially ahead of its first winter.


Cherokee sedge is lovely in these landscape applications:


  •      Adjacent to a water garden, water feature, or pond
  •      Semi-shaded garden
  •      Mass plantings
  •      Border garden (in the middle to back, depending on your other plant sizes)
  •      Urban garden
  •      Perennial garden


Cherokee Sedge Is a Lovely Ornamental Grass


Cherokee sedge will reach up to twenty inches high, with the leaves folding under to form graceful arches that dance in the wind. The leaves are long, narrow, and glossy deep green. Small spiked flowers will form and put on a short display of green or yellow flowers in the early summer.
