Vulpinoidea - Fox Sedge

This native grass is great to plant around ponds and lakes, and will help with erosion problems. It will grow best in zones 4 through 7. It will also be useful for areas around water gardens, near streams, springs, and moist woods. It grows fast and will return each year being a perennial grass. The growth will mostly occur in the spring months. Its fruit and seeds will bare in the early spring through the late summer. When the seeds fall of they will drift in the wind and replant themselves to build new plants. By only planting a few plants at a time it will help keep the overgrowth under control later on, as well as helping to ensure the original plants thrive. All states in the United States will have it growing as a native plant, with the exception Utah and Nevada. It will love full sunlight, and enjoy soils that are moist to wet. This plant will quickly cover an area. The leaves will not be retained year to year. Propagation may be by seed, or sprigs. This plant can not survive temperatures below -38 degrees. It will have a low tolerance to restricted water and in drought conditions. Fox sedge, a soft perennial grass-type plant, is known by the scientific name Carex vulpinoida. The name "fox sedge" comes from the appearance of the plant's flowers, which transition into dark brown, bristly and erect clusters of seed that look like fox tails. When mature, fox sedge consists of dense tufts of very soft, shiny, light green and finely textured grassy leaves that arch delicately from the base. The plant also features stiff, centralized culms that bloom with pencil shaped spikes of green, needle-like flowers, eventually drying to the brown stalks that give the fox sedge its name. It will have slender, firm triangular stems. The stems will be whitish at the top and brownish at the base. When it flowers during May to June, it will have green flowers. It will do well in sandy, loamy, or clay soil conditions. It will have a distinctive inflorescence which will make fox sedge easy to identify. The inflorescences consist of dense flowered spikes that are around 4cm to 10 cm long and up to 1 1/2 cm in width. Climate Zone: 3 to 7 Mature Height: up to 2 feet Mature Width: Ground Cover Sunlight: Full Sun Ships As: Bareroot Plant
