Carex scoparia (Pointed Broom Sedge) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: The usual advice 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. That being said, I have also had luck germinating the seeds in warm conditions: those I sowed outdoors in a pot on May 18 started sprouting on June 3. (Your experience may vary.)

Pointed broom sedge (Carex scoparia) grows in 1- to 2-foot-tall clumps of long, narrow, arching, rich green leaves. The slender flowering stems, which reach 2  to 3 feet tall, are tipped with pointed, green-turning-brown flower-to-seed clusters in early to midsummer. Native to much of North America, this sedge thrives in moist- to wet-soil sites. It’s well suited to a moist meadow (which is where it grows here at Hayefield, in Bucks County, PA) or a wetland planting, or for planting in a rain garden. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 9.

Harvested in June 2022. At least 25 seeds. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
