Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Three Seeded Sedge is great for your wetland area
In the Northeastern United States in wet environments like bogs, rivers, streams, and swamplands, you can find the three seeded sedges. Flowers are greenish and grow at the sedge spears' base in the late spring or early summer. Stems are somewhat thick and are covered with leaves that are bound around the stem. When the sedge is mature, the stems are almost bristly looking and the leaves vary from green to almost white. Over 600 types of sedge plants in North America exist, and most grow in moist peaty soil in USDA Zones 3 through 9.
The three seeded sedges grow anywhere from 8 to 28 inches, and the fruiting season is from June through July. You can use sedges in a landscape for a low maintenance ground cover if you have good water and drainage. Sedges like full sun, but if it is too hot, they will need extra water. You can grow sedges from seed, and they only need a light feeding of fertilizer at the beginning of the summer.
It is possible to groom your sedges, but only mow about 2/3 of the plant's height, and don't mow them more than four times a year. Grow your three seeded sedges in clumps for a comprehensive natural look. Next to a pond or small steam, growing three seeded sedges will provide excellent habitat for various animals who prefer moist conditions.
You can grow different types of sedges together for a great look of spiky and bushy plants
Pair your three seeded sedges with soft rush grass or the Appalachian sedge. For a colorful flower garden, try pairing three seeded sedges with purple coneflower, butterfly milkweed, Culver's root, swamp milkweed, or even bottlebrush sedge. You will have a landscape of greens, yellows, purples, and different textures.
