Sedge Grass, Blue Gray


Description: This is an excellent choice for a groundcover in a tough site! It features blue-gray foliage that slowly spreads but is not invasive. It grows to only 9″ tall and prefers a moist loam in full sun but will adapt to almost any site including those with light to medium shade. The reddish inflorescence appears in mid-summer. Foliage should be cut back if ratty to produce beautiful new growth.
