  • Carex plantaginea, commonly known as plantain-leaved sedge, is a perennial sedge plant native to eastern North America. It is found in a variety of habitats, including forests, woodlands, and wetlands, and is particularly abundant in the eastern and central parts of the United States.

  • Plantain-leaved sedge gets its name from its broad, lance-shaped leaves that resemble the leaves of plantain plants. The leaves can grow up to 12 inches (30 centimeters) in length and are typically dark green in color. They form basal clumps and provide an attractive ground cover.

  • This sedge species is shade-loving and is often found in woodland environments. It prefers moist to wet soils and can tolerate acidic conditions. It is commonly planted in shade gardens, woodland gardens, and naturalized areas.

  • Carex plantaginea produces flowering spikes that rise above the foliage in late spring to early summer. The flower spikes are typically greenish-brown and bear small, inconspicuous flowers. While not showy, the flowers contribute to the overall charm of the plant.

  • Plantain-leaved sedge is valued for its ornamental appeal and its ability to provide ground cover in shaded areas. It is a low-maintenance plant that requires little care once established. It can be used to stabilize soil and prevent erosion on slopes or in woodland gardens.
  • SPREAD 30-40 CM 
  • HEIGHT 20-25 CM 

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
