Exposure: Partial Sun- Full Shade Soil: Medium Wet - Medium Height: 12 inches
Description: This sedge forms thick clumps that will stand 12" tall but then flop over as the seed begins to ripen. The fine texture, clump-forming habit, dark color of the foliage, star-like perigynium, and preference for full to partial shade make Carex radiata a nice addition to any shaded home landscape. Although it can grow in medium-moisture soils, it should be in an area that never totally dries out. As a cool-season species, it actively grows during the spring and fall when soil temperatures are cool.
