Texas Sedge-grows in full sun to partial shade in dry to moist soils. While it prefers sand, it will grow in a wide variety of soil types. If it is planted in the full sun in the southeast, this species will need moist soils. This slow grower has long fine-textured foliage and colonizes through rhizomes. Drought tolerance comes once established and it is very heat tolerant. In late winter and early spring, it will go dormant and turn a straw color. In general, the more moisture it is given, the taller it will grow. This Sedge is a great native substitute for the popular Asian groundcovers Liriope muscari and Ophiopogon japonicus.

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