Pennsylvania Sedge provides lush texture for dry shade gardens. Fine low-growing foliage arches gently, giving the appearance of soft, rolling waves. Makes a lovely groundcover or lawn alternative that requires little to no mowing. Mass planting will create a cool, glossy green carpet that is tough and versatile. Semi-evergreen foliage is deer resistant and low maintenance. (Carex pennsylvanica)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

6-12” tall x 6-12” wide. Unlike most sedges which thrive in moist soils, Pennsylvania Sedge prefers dry to average soils with good drainage. However, plants also tolerate wet soils, making them ideal for shady gardens. Native of oak savannahs and dry woodlands, Pennsylvania Sedge makes a perfect partner for oak trees. The fine foliage provides excellent contrast for broad-leaf shade perennials like Hostas, Hellebores, and Hydrangeas. It also works great as a mass planting beneath architectural plants in modern designs. Plants spread slowly through rhizomes, but are not overly aggressive. A good choice for erosion control and waterwise gardening. Plant in the wildlife garden to provide shelter and  attract birds that feed on seeds.
