All About the Palm Sedge
Many homeowners enjoy grass or other ground-covered plants to create a tidy look in their yard. The palm sedge, also known as carex muskingumensis or Muskingum Sedge, is a type of grass that is commonly used as ground cover. Below is more great information about this plant.
Palm Sedge Facts
The carex muskingumensis grows best in USDA zones 4 - 9. It can grow up to three feet high and three feet wide. This plant will spread out with its rhizomes to form colonies.
The plant is named for its palm-like leaves that spread out beautifully in all directions. It grows naturally in a wetland or forest environment. The plant grows best from May to July.
It needs to be cut to the ground before the growing season so that you can enjoy new grass during the spring. It grows outward to form other plants but is not invasive, so you can add as many of these grasses without worrying about them taking over your garden and yard.
During the spring, your sedge may bloom yellow flowers that look similar to wheat. The yellow mixed with the green grass will create a beautiful and natural look along the border of your home.
This beautiful grass is native to Missouri and can be found growing in wooded plains of rivers and swamps where the ground stays moist. Part of the name comes from the Muskingum River in Ohio.
Grow a Carex Muskingumensis
This palm-looking grass can grow in full sun or full shade. You can add it as a border around your house and not worry about how much or little sun it gets.
The Muskingum Sedge is an easy plant to care for, making it an excellent choice for beginner or veteran landscapers. Make sure the soil is fertile and moist to keep your plant happy. It grows best in partial sun, although it can tolerate more or less sun as well.
You can add your sedge to a rain garden since the soil needs to be kept moist at all times. You can also grow your grass in a shallow part of a pond with other plants if you want to add height to a water feature.
This sedge can also grow in containers, borders, and rock gardens, as long as it gets plenty of water to keep the soil moist at all times. Keep the grass in shallow water, up to four inches high, to keep the plant happy in its home.
The Palm Sedge
The sedge is a perennial, meaning it will grow back year after year with the proper care so that you and your family can enjoy the fronds from this grass for a long time. You can also mix and match this plant with other sedges and grasses for an exciting look in your yard.
