We really love this woodland carex, shared with us by Alabama native plant guru Jan Midgley...originally collected by Charles Bryson in Coahoma Co. Mississippi. Carex socialis is native from Illinois south to Texas, where it can be found in low deciduous woodlands. Carex socialis forms a graceful 10" tall x 2' wide, deer-resistant, slowly expanding patch composed of very narrow green leaves...a superb textural contrast around ferns and hostas. Carex socialis has proven to be amazingly drought-tolerant in our trials.
