An outstanding North American native perennial grass that creates a swirling carpet of green, the Appalachian Sedge makes a very attractive groundcover or border along paths or around patios in shade to part shade. Morning and evening sun are fine but direct afternoon sun should be avoided. This ornamental grass forms a mounded tuff of thread-like leaves similar to fiber optic grass to about 10 to 12 inches tall and wide of slender. Small clusters of wheat colored flowers at the tips of leaves add interest in mid summer. When planted in grouping or in mass on slopes the weeping and swirling foliage flows in a water-like movement. It's a great lawn substitute in shady dry sites including clay soils and is deer and rabbit resistant and drought tolerant. You can't go wrong with this wonderful native! Get all the details below!
