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.
