Even with a wide native range from NC to the West Coast, the rare native Carex eburnea is not well-known in gardening circles. Although Carex eburnea naturally occurs on limestone outcrops, it has been fabulous for years in our acidic NC soils. The drought-tolerant, 8" wide, symmetrical clumps of soft green, needle-like foliage resemble Justin Bieber's hair, back in the day...sort of like a pettable green porcupine. Carex eburnea is a delightful deer-resistant sedge that's great in a woodland or rock garden...you'll just love this baby!
