Creek Sedge- Carex  Amphibola

Perfect for wooded and shady areas in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9, creek sedge (Carex amphibole) is a North American native.

Boasting shiny foliage and green flowers in March through June, this plant works well for erosion control and thrives in almost any amount of light, from direct sunlight to dense shade. Soil requirements are also reasonably lax, allowing this species to flourish in damp to wet soils.

Creek sedge forms clumps that reach both widths and heights of about 12 inches, making it perfect for borders and use as a ground cover.

Those who share their garden with wildlife will appreciate the plant’s deer resistant quality. Though deer and rabbits tend to shy from creek sedge, turtles and butterflies are both attracted to it. It is also of note that those in hardiness zone 6 may be able to enjoy this perennial as an evergreen.

Requiring only a bit of irrigation if planted in direct light, creek sedge is easy to care for and makes an excellent choice for both novice and expert gardeners alike. This plant can usually thrive even when neglected but does best when cut back each March to a height of three inches.
