Carex pensylvanica – No-Mow Lawn/Pennsylvania Sedge


#1 pots

Plant height: 8″

Out of stock


This fine grasslike plant does well in sun or shade, in a variety of soils – best in light shade and well-drained soil. Plant it under a small tree, and it will not be shaded out as the tree grows! It spreads gently by rhizomes and by seed to form a meadowy carpet that tolerates light foot traffic. Though it will reach only 6″-12″ in height, it can be mowed once or twice a year if you wish a more manicured appearance.

1 gal pots have deep rooted plants that will give your no-mow lawn a great start!
