Plantain Leaved Sedge, Carex plantaginea, is an ornamental woodland sedge with wide, bright green leaves. Showy flower spikes on purple stems arise in spring, floating above the low-growing foliage. Also known as Seersucker Sedge, the unusually broad leaves are conspicuously puckered, and somewhat evergreen as well. A good border plant along the woodland trail or mixed in a low-growing shade garden. Plantain Leaved Sedge requires a rich, well-drained soil in light to medium shade.
