Why plant Cherokee Sedge?

If your garden has a lot of empty and awkward space that you just don't know how to fill, the Cherokee Sedge is the perfect filler to get rid of that space and add some texture! These grasses are native to North America and will serve as a foundation in your garden. Cherokee Sedge are beautifully grown in any landscape, with rich green bending foliage and wheat-like flowers that will compliment any woodland perennials. Cherokee Sedges are very low maintenance as they are fast growers and they can keep their bright green color without having to follow a strict watering and fertilizer schedule.

These specific grasses are in the genus 'Carex' which is the latin translation for the word 'cutter.' This correlates to the sharp serrated-like edges on the leaves of the Cherokee Sedge.

How to use Cherokee Sedge in the landscape?

The Cherokee Sedge will grow and thrive just about anywhere! They prefer moist soil but will do just fine in average garden soils. These attractive garden staples have clumps of thin textured grass-like leaves that fall where they please! These grasses look great in your home garden, lining walkways, rock gardens, or even surrounding ponds or lakes as they provide incredible protection for waterfowl! Where you decide to plant the Cherokee sedge it is guaranteed to look great! They are also very self sufficient as they are disease and pest resistant.

How To Plant Cherokee Sedge

To properly plant the Cherokee Sedge, they grow best in well-draining soil and love to be kept moist. Sages are drought tolerant so they do just fine during dry-spells. They aren't too picky! Whether it comes to watering or sun exposure it doesn't take much to keep them alive.

How To Water

Cherokee Sedge is drought-tolerant and will fare well during dry spells. They aren't too needy when it comes to watering; you can distinguish when your plant will need watering based on the last time it rained. Remember to keep your soil slightly moist and test your soil frequently!

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Pruning is no big hassle here! Foliage should then be cut and removed in late winter before new growth comes in.
