Carex leavenworthii is another of the fabulous native sedges that makes a superb addition to the garden. Carex leavenworthii is native from Canada south to Florida and west to Texas, where it forms tight clumps to 6" tall x 2' wide. The very narrow, dark green foliage provides an incredible textural contrast to bold foliage plants like hostas. While the drought-tolerant Carex leavenworthii doesn't run, it can seed and subsequently makes a great no-mow lawn substitute. Our offerings are seed-grown from a Pat McNeal collection in Travis County, Texas.
