Texas Sedge - 25 Plants $82.99 Description

Texas Sedge 

Texas Sedge is a beautiful grass-like sedge with attractive tiny flowers and long foliage. 

This sedge is the common name of Carex texensis (botanical name) and belongs to the sedge family. It is a herbaceous perennial plant that looks like grass and has a spread of around 1 foot, including stems, leaves (foliage), and rhizomatous roots. It is a native sedge to the Northern United States and is widely grown in savannas, sandy lands (in Post Oaks), and woodland gardens in the Northern US. It is a cold-season sedge.

The stems of the sedge are solid and green in color, while the leaves grow upward in an alternate arrangement. The leaves gain a maximum length of 1 foot (from 9-12 inches). The leaves are smooth, fine-textured, and simple, having a parallel midvein, and the leaves are also referred to as foliage. The clumps of long foliage are bright green. They are cutting the dead or old foliage before Spring appreciates the growth rate of this rush-like sedge. 

Texas Sedge loves dry soils with full sun to part shade and full shade

The plant prefers to thrive in sandy soils, and dry to moist lands are their second priority. They grow in various soil types like forests, sandy lands, landscape gardens, meadows, and woodlands.

It is highly adaptive and grows in alkaline, neutral, acidic, and naturalized lands. The Carex texensis can tolerate maximum heat and effortlessly grow in full sun. The sedge loves dry soils with full sun to part shade and full shade.

The plant's water requirement is low to medium for its ideal growth. Once the sedge is established, it will not need regular and proper watering. There is no need to take care of the sedge except to provide well-drained land and water. The heat tolerance and drought-tolerant quality of this grassy sedge are exceptionally unique, which helps them even to survive dry shade. 

The flowers of the plant are tiny and unisexual, and the blooming time of the flowers is early Spring, especially from March to May. These tiny flower spikelets are green when they bloom in the Spring and gradually turn their color to copper and brown.

It has a fibrous root system while the rhizomes grow underground. The spread of the plant occurs through seeds and rhizomes, and it grows in hardiness zones from 5 to 9.

This plant is widely used as ornaments in gardens and can handle foot traffic with stones. The combination of stone pebbles and sedges can make a great walking lane for home gardens and parks without a hitch. Many buy Texas sedges to grow on the under lands around large trees to give their garden a delicate appearance. These sedges are drought and deer-resistant and can easily tolerate dry and challenging situations.
