Blue Wood Sedge ranges from the central eastern and mid states down to the gulf coast in low woods and moist meadow edges. It is at home in a shady place with moist soil. Once established, it tolerates drought well. This is an evergreen sedge that would make a great replacement for liriope. It makes strong, slowly spreading clumps of fine-textured, glaucous, quilted, 1" wide leaves. Use it as a border or mixed in with just about any shade loving wildflower. As with all Carex, a late winter hair cut will keep it tidy.
