Carex flaccosperma (Cyperaceae)
(CARE-eks fla-co-SPER-ma)
Blue Wood Sedge

A fine native groundcover for shade, Blue Wood Sedge spreads slowly in the woodland garden, mixing easily with wildflowers and ferns. Evergreen clumps are 6-10" tall, with 1/2" wide bluish leaves. Not very picky about soils or moisture, and thrives in bright shade -- what a workhorse of a plant! You'll enjoy adding this one to your Carex collection.
