Sawgrass 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Sawgrass 

Sawgrass is a sedge and a perennial plant called Cladium jamaicense and River of Grass.

Mainly growing in tropical and subtropical regions of the United States, from Virginia to Florida, Sawgrass has even reached southern Canada. Growing taller than regular grass, Sawgrass can realize a height of 9 feet. The leaves have sharp saw-like teeth that are coarse-textured and dense. Sawgrass is so firm and sturdy that, if need be, it can support a person's weight while walking along a river bank. Sawgrass does best in swampy soil yet can adapt to the coarse ground.

Care and Maintenance

Although it is easy to grow, Sawgrass does require special handling. Plant your Sawgrass seeds in a container of good quality potting mix in a ratio of one part peat, one part compost, parts soil and three parts sand, and three parts pumice; ensure that the pots have drainage holes that allow water to flow out. Sawgrass plants like moist soil, yet fungal growth can occur if left in water. Once germinated and ready to be planted in the ground, use gloves before handling to avoid slicing your hands on the serrated edges of the leaves. Tap the side of the container, then gently remove the plant and soil, remembering to loosen the dirt around the roots.

Place the Sawgrass stem on top of the mix in the ground so that it is positioned at the same height above the soil as it was in its container. Add more of the mixture and work the soil around the plant. Continue adding the mix, tamp down the ground to position the plant, and remove any extra air. Water the plant until thoroughly moistened. In the garden, your Sawgrass plant will need bright indirect sunlight. Do not overwater the Sawgrass to keep it from blight. Instead, fertilize your Sawgrass plant with a liquid fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium in the water. Do this every two to three weeks in the spring. Treat pests such as aphids and scales with a general-purpose insecticide.

Considerations

Much wildlife takes shelter between Sawgrass leaves, and many eat this plant's seeds, including ducks, geese, and small mammals. As a beautiful addition to your backyard garden sanctuary, Sawgrass will provide natural wonderment and much delight in a water garden or near a garden pond.
