Carex albicans, or White Tinged Sedge, has whispy arching leaf blades and a delicate mounding appearance. The unique, scaly flower spikes in late spring may be green, brown or tan, but each has a distinct white margin. This is an excellent sedge for creating a turf-like ground cover in difficult dry shaded areas. White Tinged Sedge grows in dense tufts that spread slowly to form colonies, but it is not overly aggressive. Found mainly in dry rocky or sandy, upland forests, it is drought tolerant, versatile and performs well in a variety of situations in the garden and landscape.
