Carex texensis is another of the great native sedges for textural use in the garden. Native from New York west to Nebraska and south to...you guessed it, Texas, Carex texensis can be found in dry meadows and open woodlands. In the garden, Carex texensis makes a charming 5" tall x 1' wide clump of narrow, wispy, evergreen foliage that can spread out to 30". Come to think of it, there isn't much wispiness coming out of Texas these days...unless you include Austin. In low traffic areas, Carex texensis is often planted on 6" centers as a seldom-mown lawn substitute.
