Blue Sedge


Excellent, low-growing, spreading ground cover for cool to warm, dry sites with narrow blue-grey leaves. In lighter soils it can spread aggressively, but it will also perform well in more compacted soil, shade, or with competition from surrounding plants. All of these traits make this an excellent grass selection for drought tolerant landscapes.
