An excellent grass-like groundcover for shade, Oak Sedge tolerates dry, difficult shade that many other plants won't. Oak sedge grows 6 to 12 inches tall, and can even be mowed for a lawn-like effect.
Plant Oak Sedge 9 to 12 inches apart in well-drained woodland soil - Oak sedge does poorly in compacted, heavy clay soils that don't drain well. For a higher moisture situation we recommend Eastern Star Sedge (Carex radiata) as it tolerates more mesic environments.
Plug flats are an economical way to plant large areas - We currently grow Oak Sedge in 50-cell plug flats.
