Grey's Sedge

Carex grayi

  • Carex grayi is a perennial sedge that forms attractive slowly spreading clumps.
  • The narrow leaves are shiny, upright and are usually semi-evergreen.
  • In early summer greenish spherical flower spikes are held above the graceful shaggy foliage.
  • The unique flowers resemble a starburst even after they transition into warm brown seed clusters.
  • This sedge prospers in part sun to part shade in moist or wet soils. Plants tolerate full sun if abundant moisture is present.
  • Carex grayi is native to most of the eastern and central United States.
