Carex texensis, more commonly known as Texas sedge, is a perennial weeping sedge native to the Central and Eastern United States.

 It’s primarily sought after due to its similarity to turfgrass but is much easier to maintain. Texas sedge is often chosen as a plant covering for too shady or too dry areas for grasses to grow. Due to its ability to withstand unfavorable conditions, the Texas sedge is used for landscape naturalization and restoration. 

 

 Texas sedge grows several inches before it begins to weep. During the early summer, tiny spikelets containing the plant’s flowers begin to bloom, first green, but then later switching to a brown color as the months go by. 

 

 Texas sedge is remarkably easy to care for. It rarely, if ever, requires any dedicated watering, and while it’s possible to mow it several times per year, it’s not necessary to do so.

 Some spacing between sedge plants is needed (usually 6 inches), but a lot of care about how they’re distributed isn’t required. Texas sedge is also quite good at withstanding at least some foot traffic, which is why it’s common for it to be placed in between stepping stones or along footpaths. It’s also considered to be unpalatable to deer and is generally pest-resistant. 

 

 Texas sedge thrives best in semi-woody areas with sandy soil and typically does well alongside other sedge-like plants. The intense green color is best achieved by placing it in a partially shaded area, although it can still grow in full sun and easily moved from one place to another without much of an issue.
