Carex pensylvanica / Pennsylvania Sedge
Carex pensylvanica is native to upland forests and prairies of Eastern North America. Also known as Oak Sedge, it often grows in dry oak forests. Blades grow about 12 inches long. The plants quickly spread via rhizomes, so plant them in a space where they can spread and become a ground cover, or a plot with natural bordering of sidewalks, driveways, or buildings, et cetera. Prefers moist acidic soils but is tolerant of average soil and moderate drought. Pennsylvania Sedge is unpalatable to deer.
