- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: moisture-retentive soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Originating from swamps and damp meadows in North America, this semi-evergreen sedge will thrive in moisture-retentive soil - and therefore makes a handsome addition to bog gardens or pond margins. The slender foliage forms in palm-like spays, creating a slowly spreading mound, which in summer is topped with brownish flowerheads.
- Garden care: Comb through the plant in late winter to remove any dead foliage.
