If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Spike Sedge - Carex nadina
Spike Sedge is hardy in zones 2 through 6.
Spike Sedge grow in wetlands and Arctic and alpine (high mountain) tundra. The majority of garden sedges thrive in moist shade, an environment where grass does not do well. Sedges can thus provide the open, airy, vertical look of ornamental grasses in shade plantings. Plant breeders have created varieties with new growth habits, leaf colors, and markings. Native sedges go well in natural landscape plantings. Sedges can make excellent container plants for patios and terraces.
Spike Sedge is native to the mountainous areas of the western US and Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Canada in hardiness zones 2 to 6. Unlike most other sedges, it prefers sun and dry sandy soil. It grows naturally in areas with limestone outcroppings, making it suitable for rock gardens with limestone ledge or boulders. It prefers rich soil (pH > 7.2). It grows 1 to 3 feet tall with fibrous roots. In hot areas, it may go dormant during the summer.
Spike Sedge are easy to maintain.
Sedges are easy to maintain as long as they have enough water. They seldom need fertilizer. Deer and rabbits leave them alone, and they have few pests or diseases. When plants look tattered, they can be cut back by about 1/3. Divide if the center starts to die out. Seeds or division can propagate sedges.
