This is a beautiful, spreading, evergreen, native perennial grass, which can be used as a lawn alternative. This species is botanically distinct from Carex praegracilis, but the two are frequently confused based on their overall appearance. The primary difference is that Carex pansa is better adapted to sandy soil, whereas Carex praegracilis is highly adaptable. No matter which grass you choose, either is sure to please by lending a graceful, meadow look to any garden.
