Three Seeded Sedge (Carex trisperma)
Three Seeded Sedge: Carex trisperma, or three seeded sedge, is a vibrant green, tall, North American native perennial grass. It originated in New England but will do well in almost all USDA plant hardiness zones in the contiguous United States. It is unfussy about light requirements, growing in complete sun or a mixture of sunshine and shade.
Three Seeded Sedge Is a Water Pond Favorite
TN Nursery customers with ponds love this sedge grass for its relatively easy care along the banks of their water garden. This grass loves a moist environment, such as the edges of a creek, river's edge, swamp, inlet, or pond. But it's also drought-tolerant during short dry spells.
Three seeded sedge stems are thick and fibrous with three long, narrow arrow-shaped leaves that wrap around them tightly. This growing pattern gives the sedge grass the necessary structure as it grows into a tall, spiky plant at maturity. The leaves are generally glossy in appearance and dark green. However, depending on the soil and light conditions, the colors can range from a lighter, yellowish green to forest green--almost brown.
They form large, attractive clumps that will spread to about one foot across. The clumps will house ten or more two-foot tall tufts to form a lovely spiked appearance.
Carex trisperma Attracts Local Wildlife
Three seeded sedge blossoms arrive in the summer, small white flowers. Although almost unnoticeable among the grassy cover, bees and butterflies will take note and arrive to help spread the pollen. Birds will also arrive as the flowers give way to seeds that will provide them with an excellent source of nutrition.
