Appalachian Sedge

A soft, finely textured native that ranges from GA to ME. In the wild, it carpets dry woodlands like a shaggy bright green lawn. Use as an accent in shady beds, mixed with ferns and wildflowers. Appalachian Sedge is also ideal for covering slopes, or as a groundcover in cool, partly shaded areas. When massed, its fine blades cascade like flowing water across the landscape.
