Sedges As Grass Alternatives

Sedges are groundcover plants -- usually native to your area --with grass like leaves growing in clumps or bunches. Perennial sedges such as the genus Carex spp. capture the look of an unbroken lawn. They may be mown, just a few times a year, to establish a 'lawn' look or leave them un-mowed to let the breeze move their foliage. There are many narrow-bladed grass alternatives in the genus Carex. Some thrive in sun whilst others seek shade. Varying in height and texture, there are Carex sedges for dry or boggy spots, clay or sandy soils, and all USDA Plant Hardiness Zones.

There are so many varieties of sedges and the genus Carex.spp. it?s a good idea to seek the advice of local extension agents or native-plant experts for help in selecting a regionally appropriate sedge. More on Sedges coming Soon!
