Carex amphibola


Soil:  Acidic, Rich, Well-drained
Moisture:  Moist
Light:  Part Sun to Shade
Plant Height:  12 to 18 inches
Plant Width:  12 to 18 inches
Pests: None
Landscape Value:  Great as a groundcover or edging plant for shade gardens and along wooded paths.  Useful for erosion control.

Clump-forming, semi-evergreen sedge with shiny, narrow leaves that arch gracefully towards the ground.  Spikes of tiny green flowers rise above the foliage in late spring.  Attracts small, seed-eating birds and turtles.  Plants self-seed, but not aggressively.  Tolerates sun, but will need either a consistently moist site or irrigation during hot summer months.  Larval host to some Skipper butterflies.
