This unique low-growing sedge reaches a height of only six inches. The dense clumps of fine green leaves take on a spherical shape, with inconspicuous whitish-green flower tufts appearing in early spring. The soft spherical appearance of this plant belies its tough nature and adaptability to heat and drought.
A wonderful naturalizer, Carex eburnea makes an excellent groundcover or lawn alternative. In the wild this distinctive plant grows in conifer or mixed forests, often on limestone bluffs, making it perfect for planting between stone pavers, in dry or rocky soils in semi-shade. Our plants are grown from seed originating from Door County, Wisconsin.Also known as: Bristle-Leaf Sedge
