Pennsylvania Sedge, Carex pensylvanica, is a popular lawn alternative for home landscaping, with fine textured leaves and a creeping habit. Reaching heights of only 8" when in bloom, Pennsylvania Sedge grows actively in spring and fall when soil temperatures are cooler. Planted one foot on center, it fills-in to form a dense low growing turf that doesn't need mowing. Requires a well-drained dryer soil, in partial to full shade.
