Bloom Description: Appalachian sedge has fine, medium green leaves that grow 12-24 in (30. 5-61 cm) in length that are arranged in low clumps 4-8 in (10. 2-20. 3 cm) in diameter. It blooms in early spring producing small inconspicuous blossoms.
Soil Type: Likes average to poor soils.
Propagation: As with most carex species and cultivars, propagation is quite easy by division. A mature clump will yield many new divisions which can be directly replanted or potted up and grown on. We wash all of the soil off and trim the long, fine textured roots back to about 2 in (5. 1 cm) and do the same with the 12-24 in (30. 5-61 cm) tops. We repot them, and new roots appear at the bottom of the pots within just a few weeks.
Native to: Carex appalachica is native to the eastern united states from maine to south carolina and west to tennessee, kentucky and ohio.
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - the super fine texture of the carex appalachica cascading down from the top adds a remarkable dimension as it swirls around tree trunks and rocks along it's path. It gives the impression of the movement of wind and water and makes a fine addition to gardens and woodland habitats.
