(aka: Carex 'Bunny Blue') Want to cut down on mulching in your woodland garden? Think carex! Carex laxiculmis is another superb American native sedge that can be found in moist woods from Canada south to Florida. Carex 'Hobb' is a particularly nice blue-foliaged selection introduced by the Head Brothers of Seneca, South Carolina. Expect Carex 'Hobb' to make a slowly spreading, 18" wide, deer-resistant clump of 1' long x 0.5" wide evergreen foliage...very nice when used either as a specimen or in a mass groundcover planting. The longer we grow this blue sedge, the more we love it.
