Affordable Cherokee Sedge For Every Landscape

Cherokee Sedge 

One of the tallest sedges in the Southeastern United States is the Cherokee Sedge (species Carex Cherokeensis Schwein) in the Cypress family. This perennial, grass-like plant tolerates drought but thrives in moist soil. It is most often found in or near the border of a forest. 

 

 Native to Southeastern zones 6-9, this native North American sedge plant performs the function of a landscape foundation in natural areas, rain gardens, meadow gardens, and ground covers. Tough and durable, the Cherokee Sedge flourishes in moist to wet soil but accommodates average soil as well. Direct sunlight tolerated, but partial shade (especially in the hottest part of the day) is ideal.

 

 These plants have delicate, curved evergreen leaves that measure 16 inches in length and a quarter-inch in width growing from the base in a triangular pattern. Clumps of Cherokee Sedge are only 6 to 8 inches tall in the winter but may double their height during summer months.

 

 Of the more than 2000 species of sedge plants, some are difficult to identify, but the Cherokee Sedge is distinctive enough to be differentiated from other sedges. A dainty flower appears in mid-spring, followed by a greenish, wheat-like seed pod early in summer. The uniqueness of the blooms helps classify the species, as sedges can only be recognized when in full bloom.

 

 The rich green foliage, delicate, grass-like flower, and shapely seed spike make the Cherokee sedge a perfect partner for woodland perennial wildflowers in any setting.
