Interesting Notes about Carex amphibola:
Carex amphibola is a valuable Groundcover or Edging Plant for a Shade Garden. This sedge is useful in meadows and is a good component for a Grouping or Mass Planting. Plants provide Erosion Control and Winter Interest and are appropriate for Deer Resistant Plantings, Low Maintenance Plantings, Restoration Projects and Wildlife Gardens. Carex amphibola is a great native substitute for the popular Asian groundcovers Liriope muscari and Ophiopogon japonicus.
