Sallow Sedge (Carex lurida )

  • I'm native to Tompkins County, NY


    I thive in any sun expossure, but prefer wetter soils.


    I'm a host plant to several different spieces of Skipper butterflies and moths.


    I'm clump forming with graceful fountain-like habit. 


    I have attractive spiky seed heads.


    I'm lovely in large groups around ponds or water gardens.
