Pennsylvania sedge, oak sedge

Carex pensylvanica

Low sedge with soft, delicate, arching, semi-evergreen leaves in clumps up to 8″ tall, this shade-loving perennial is native to thickets and dry woodland areas in Eastern and Central North America from Quebec to Manitoba south to Mississippi and Georgia. Typically grows in loose colonies with a creeping habit and is often found in areas with oak trees, hence the additional common name of oak sedge. It is semi-evergreen in moderately cold winter climates.
