Seersucker Sedge is a shade-loving clumping evergreen ornamental grass with broad dimpled foliage that emerges maroon and matures to shiny green with prominent veins.  Delicate purple blooms appear in early spring above the foliage.  Prefers partial sun and moist well-drained soil but can tolerate drier conditions.  

Carex plantaginea is a host plant for several woodland butterflies, including the Appalachian Brown.  The seeds are attractive for birds.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
