Carex Pennsylvanica is a native sedge that is found from Georgia to Canada , Maine to the Dakotas.

Native to open woods this plant is an excellent choice for under story plantings. Does well in hardwood forests.,Mulch substitutes and shade gardens, plants form green mats under your trees and higher shrubs. Graceful foliage and tight clumps make a great display as it interplays with the wind. Choose well drained areas. think about what a open forest provides;cool roots, filtered light, good drainage and air flow. Don’t crowd with low limbs or dense brush.
