Quick Overview:

Blue wood sedge, is native to eastern North America. Carex flaccosperma var. glaucodea is more typically found in drier acidic soils of wooded slopes, upland ridges, ravines or wooded valleys along streams. This is an evergreen sedge that forms attractive clumps (6-10? tall) of fine-textured, narrow, grass-like, glaucous, blue-green leaves (to 3/8? wide). It is grown in the landscape for its foliage effect. Greenish-white flowers in spring are insignificant.
