Carex lurida (Sallow Sedge) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for those who have experience handling seeds that need a natural or artificial chilling period.

The best approach is to surface-sow the seeds in fall to early winter, setting them outdoors so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring. If you sow after December, providing an artificial cold period of about 2 months may be an adequate substitute to natural chilling.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

Sallow sedge (Carex lurida) forms dense clumps of arching, bright green leaf blades. Reaching anywhere from 1 to 3 feet tall, it flowers in late spring, slowly ripening its spiky seedheads through the summer. The species is native to much of the eastern half of North America (including my meadow in Bucks County, PA). It thrives in moist to wet soils (average is ok) and can work well in a rain garden, wetland, or meadow or along the edge of a pond. Full sun to partial shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Harvested in mid August 2022. At least 25 seeds. PA ecotype.
