Shallow Sedge-is a graceful clump forming sedge with a fountain like habit. Shallow Sedge thrives in sunny moist or wet sites and tolerates seasonal flooding. It is essential that planting sites remain moist and this is a valuable plant for wetland restoration and soil retention in Bioswales and drainage ditches. This Sedge is a great native substitute for the popular non-native groundcovers Liriope muscari and Ophiopogon japonicus.

Host plant for Skipper and Satyr butterflies and the seeds are relished by birds and turtles. Deer Resistant!
