Carex pensylvanica

Carex pensylvanica, most commonly known as Pennsylvania Sedge, is a resilient and hardy North American native grass that will thrive across the cooler to moderate temperature regions of the United States. It is an easy-to-care-for ornamental grass species that flourishes in many light conditions, with a preference for full sunshine to partial shade. This perennial ornamental will also grow in full shade; however, it will spread slowly in lower-light conditions.

Unlike some ornamental grasses, it does best in drier soil conditions. This tolerance for dryness makes it a favorite for TN Nursery clients who live in arid climates or often have community watering restrictions.

Carex pensylvanica requires little to no care from the gardener once it establishes its roots. It is drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, pest-resistant, and disease-resistant.

Other Common Names for Carex pensylvanica:

  • Rush
  • Sedge Grass
  • Seersucker Sedge
  • Plantainleaf Sedge

How to Use Carex pensylvanica in Your Landscape

This sedge grass grows in attractive clumps and has a height of around eight inches. If you want to keep it even shorter, you can cut or mow it back--it doesn't mind!

  • Pollinator Garden
  • Xeriscaping or Desert Garden
  • Native Garden
  • Semi-shade or Shade Garden

The Pleasant Appearance of Carex pensylvanica

Pennsylvania sedge grass is a beautiful ornamental.

Small yellow flowers will blossom open in late spring--so petite that you might not notice them. However, the bumblebees and butterflies will find them and help pollinate your yard.

The grass grows in attractive medium-sized clumps in gracefully arching, slender spikes. They are semi-evergreen in the moderately warm USDA growing zones.

Pennsylvania sedge delivery

The sedges were in good shape, but for some reason the shipment required a signature and I was away from the house so my poor plants sat the PO for three days (weekend) before I could pick them up. I ordered them, was expecting them, and had they just been dropped off they would have been much happier. I don't think you should require a signature.
