Product information "Carex plantaginea"

Seersucker sedge form extended clumps over time. Its very broad, deep green foliage that grows very flat is very striking. In May, the rather inconspicuous, yellow-brown spikes appear. It prefers partial shade, in fresh, well-drained, nutrient-rich soils. Seersucker sedge can be used in sunny to partially shaded perennial borders, rock gardens, natural gardens or as a ground cover under sparse shrubs since it survives even longer dry periods without problems. In conjunction with flowering perennials such creeping navelwort, heartleaf foamflower, shade-tolerant cranesbills and many other perennials for shade, this sedge is very attractive.
