Product Description

Northern Sedge - Carex deflexa

The grass-like Northern Sedge will beautifully grace any landscaping or gardening design. Northern Sedge is not actually a grass, but a flowering plant. Naturally, it is found on the edges and interiors of forests and woodland areas. The smooth, blade-like leaves will grow to about two feet when mature. Among the green blades, the leaves and spiky flowers will give subtle hints of pink, red, or purple. Plants in this species, the Carex species, produce small seeds that attract and feed many types of birds. Imagine birds and butterflies flitting above and among the swaying blades. The Northern Sedge grows well in soil that is kept moist. It prefers the northern states and is especially fond of the New England states (zones 5-8), but can be grown in southern areas if it is correctly and properly cared for. This durable plant prefers full sunlight, but can also be grown in partial shade. Because it is a perennial, it will continue to grow effortlessly year after year. It is easy to care for and is practically maintenance free. You can choose to prune, or even mow (down to 2/3 it’s height), the plant after a flowering cycle to keep a tidy appearance in your lawn or garden, or it can simply be left alone. It would be an attractive addition to a flower bed, giving texture to your garden as a small bush. Northern Sedge would also be appealing contained in a large planting pot. Imagine Northern Sedge rolling in the breeze, a peaceful grassy covering for a large area or bordering a pond or stream. It would also be the perfect border for a yard, walkway, or flower bed. This flowering, grass-like plant will provide the texture and movement that you are looking for in your landscaping or gardening design.
