Carex eburnea, or Ivory Sedge, reaches a height of only six inches. The dense clumps of fine green leaves take on a spherical shape, covered with ivory-green flower tufts in early spring. The soft, spherical appearance of this sedge belies its tough nature and adaptability to heat and drought. A wonderful naturalizer, Ivory Sedge is an excellent ground cover or lawn alternative. In the wild this distinctive plant grows in conifer or mixed forests, often on limestone bluffs, making it a good candidate for planting between stones or pavers, in dry soils and semi-shade.
