     Pennsylvania Sedge is a beautiful, soft, grass-like sedge that makes a lovely groundcover in shady areas. 

 

     It tolerates some foot traffic and ideal for a lawn alternative in shady areas.

 

     Carex pensylvanica is one of the few sedges that prefers dry soil.  It spreads by rhizomes up to 8 inches per year to form a turf.  It also makes a great ground cover under deciduous trees.

 

     Fun fact: Pennsylvania sedge is common around oak trees and therefore often is referred to as oak sedge
