Pale sedge (Carex pallescens) is a clump-forming species that thrives in average to moist-soil sites. The plants reach 1 to 2 feet tall and produce seedheads in early summer. The species is native to parts of northeastern and northwestern North America (including my meadow in Bucks County, PA), as well as parts of Asia and Europe. There’s not much information available about this species, but, based upon how it grows here, I’d say it’s a better choice for a wildish area than a garden. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8, probably.
Harvested in late June 2022. At least 25 seeds. PA ecotype.
