Carex Pennsylvania - Pennsylvania Sedge Plugs Growing Guide
This sedge plant makes an excellent addition to garden spaces where it is difficult to get other plants to grow.
Because it is used to filling in shady or forest floor areas naturally, it works well as a ground cover or a shady garden space. Plugs are a great way to establish this plant, but they will require extra attention to establish themselves in the beginning.
If you are considering Pennsylvania Sedge plugs, these are some of the growing conditions to consider.
Pennsylvania Sedge Description
The Pennsylvania Sedge is a thick, low growing plant that resembles fine, long grass.
It's bright green color along with its tendency to creep along with the soil as it grows means that any area where it is planted will quickly fill in with color.
Hardy Planting Zone
The Pennsylvania Sedge plugs should only be added to garden spaces that are within hardy zones 3 to 9.
Bloom Season of Pennsylvania Sedge
The flowing sedge plants do produce a tiny bloom that can be witnessed from May to June, as soon as it is warm enough for the grassy mounds to fill in.
While there are flowering blooms on the Pennsylvania Sedge, they are short bloomers and small. A bright yellow colored flower will fill in the grass clumps and only last a couple of days.
Height at Maturity
Most of the Pennsylvania Sedge plugs that are planted will reach an average of eight inches tall when fully mature. Some of the tallest plugs can reach as much as twelve inches tall, but the plant is more likely to spread than grow in height.
Soil Type Preferred by Pennsylvania Sedge
The Pennsylvania Sedge is incredibly tolerant of all kinds of soil conditions. The plant is capable of growing in wet to dry soil, as long as it receives moisture periodically.
Sun or Shade?
The sedge grows best in shaded conditions, which is actually where it grows naturally.
