Looking for a rain garden sedge that is perfect for a part shade to full sun location with a unique seed head? Look no further. This slow growing, short, clump forming sedge produces green starburst flowers in the spring that turn brown in the summer and fall. It is a source of food for caterpillars and butterflies late into the year as leaves are semi-evergreen. Plant in moist, well drained clay or sandy soil rich in organic matter. A great option alongside or in a pond or rain garden.
