The Woolly Sedge is a giant perennial sedge with fibrous roots that is the perfect plant to combat soil erosion. It grows thick and pretty with thick light green leaves and a purple, pink, or red sheath. The plant's leaves darken as late summer arrives, and small light green to light yellow staminate flowers emerge.
This sedge grows beautifully in moist or wet conditions, although it adapts well to drier conditions too. It loves the sun and is hardy. It also spreads quickly, making it an easy plant to cultivate for ground cover. The Woolly Sedge will attract butterflies, wetland birds, various waterfowl, rails, and geese, so it is a favorite with wildlife enthusiasts.
