CAREX

Commonly known as Sedge grass

Excellent as a foundation for planting schemes as there is a sedge for almost every site in the garden. The grass-like, airy flower spikes are an added attraction.

Vast genus of over 1,800 species of deciduous or evergreen, rhizomatous or tufted perennials. Plants of bog, moorland or damp woodland.

UK natives, C. pendula (Drooping sedge) and C. sylvatica (Wood sedge), where not translocated, are a marker of ancient woodland.
