The Cherokee Sedge has become well-known among gardening hobbyists as a pendulous flower with attractive growth and solid seed combinations.
If you are looking to grow this flower for your next project, here is some of the extra information that you need to know:
Hardy Planting Zone - The Cherokee Sedge has a hardy planting zone that is from six to nine. That means that this floral plant can flourish in environments that are well below freezing, but they can also do well in environments that are just above freezing as well. The USDA planting zones can go from one to eleven. Understanding a plant's hardy planting zone can go a long way in knowing the right time to plant. It could also mean the difference between being successful with your Cherokee Sedge endeavors to merely failing at it.
Bloom Season (If Any) - You will see the characteristic spiked white flowers appearing over the foliage in late spring in most USDA growing areas. The Cherokee Sedge will often transition into an immense amount of wheat-like seed clusters, even though they are usually planted in a woodland environment.
You will almost always see the Cherokee Sedge in a lovely and eye-appealing white color.
A mature Cherokee Hedge plant will grow to a height of about 12 inches once they reach maturity. Additionally, the Cherokee Sedge will often have a spread of as much as 12 inches as well. They will usually have foliage that will remain dense down to the ground. This comes in handy simply because that means the Cherokee Hedge will not require facer plants in the front to grow correctly.
The Cherokee Sedge will usually tolerate soils either amid a drought or even wet soils. Moreover, you will often see them in both alkaline and acid soils as well. Additionally, these plants are not prone to predators such as deer, nor are they a preferred choice of insect pests.
This plant generally prefers either partial sun or a small amount of shade. However, it can adapt to complete sunlight as long as it is appropriately watered.
Plant Description - Cherokee Sedge is a very robust perennial native to floodplain forests, dry-mesic woodlands, acidic, loamy forests, slopes situated over streams, and Blackland prairies. The species can first be found in Missouri, but it can extend outward as far as Florida.
