Cherokee Sedge Description

Cherokee Sedge 

Cherokee Sedge, also known scientifically as the Carex Cherokeensis, is a grass-type, clumping sedge that is native to North America.

It bears small tiny greenish-white flowers and seed spikes resembling wheat. The Cherokee Sedge has thick green narrow leaves that droop gracefully. This plant tolerates droughts, yet they tend to thrive best in moist environments. A perennial that comes back annually, the Cherokee Sedge is often found near the borders of a forest. This plant is native to North America. It has been used as a landscape foundation in rain gardens, natural areas, and rain or meadow gardens and works terrifically as ground covers. The Cherokee Sedge, like its name, is tough and durable. Direct sunlight or partial shade during the hottest part of the day are ideal growing conditions.

Cherokee sedges growing and maintenance

Clumps of Cherokee Sedge are only 6 to 8 inches tall in the winter, yet grow to double-height during summer months and reach full height and width in over a year. As an evergreen, grass-like plant, the Cherokee Sedge is used as an accent plant in small gardens, filler in larger, more extensive gardens, or as a border along the edges of ponds and garden streams to prevent soil erosion. The Cherokee Sedge blooms with long, narrow leaves in a deep green color that nicely complements other plants in your outdoor space. A natural plant to take care of, it is low-maintenance and should not be cut back unless you want to trim brown tips in the winter and early spring. The Cherokee sedge does not have any major problems with insects and is deer-resistant. <h2><span>
