The Sawgrass plant is typical in wetlands, and it makes a lovely addition to Water Lake and ponds. The plant is also known as the Cladium Jamaicense. Sawgrass grows six or seven feet tall. The plant primarily grows in brackish water wetlands as well as shallow freshwater marshes. Sawgrass grows well in marl soils and organic soils at times in rock areas with small solutions in holes. It is, therefore, ideal for areas where the moist soil is not a problem and when it germinates, it grows to an attractive grassy appearance. When sawgrass starts to grow, it becomes in handy and makes the areas where they grow look great and fantastic.

Sawgrass sedge plants are found throughout the world and grow in tropical regions and temperate environments alike. The genus comprises over 60 distinct species, not including several species such as the Cladium Mariscus Californicum and the  Cladium Mariscus Intermedium

Due to their hardy nature, these sedge plants able to adapt to a wide variety of wet and moisture-filled conditions. Frequently, the plants are found growing together to form a highly dense bed covering the soil. 

 

 

 

 Plants in the Cladium family are characterized by the distinctive serrated edges of their sword-shaped leaves. Sedge plants in the sawgrass family are found in wet environments and spread through buried rhizomes.
