Low maintenance sedge excellent for growing around ponds, streams, or swampy areas. Beautiful and unique seed heads form in the summer, which resembles a fox tail. Actively grows in spring and fall when soil temperatures are cool. Will do well in partial shade with medium soil moisture. This grass does not grow very tall but it does spread quickly so plant with other competitive plants. Tolerates a variety of soil types.
