Hay Sedge thick luscious blades of the native hay sedge do not only provide a beautiful sight for the eyes but also offers itself as an erosion preventative.
The Hay Sedge or Carex Argyrantha is found in the Eastern part of the United States and Canada. Hay Sedge is registered with the United States government as a threatened plant in the state of Tennessee. Hay Sedge is found mostly in forests and is a perennial plant. Hay Sedge does prefer to grow in sandy or rocky dry soil but can be found in fertile, moist soil and is considered a grass or rush. Hay Sedge is not very showy and grows from the end of May to the middle of September in most areas it is. Hay Sedge does not have a blossom to speak of but does have a bud of grassy, spiny, spiked tufts that are green, yellow, or red to brown and turn to seeds that will germinate the following year and spread. This green tuft can be seen from May to July. Hay Sedge will grow to 6-35 inches before dying out. Hay Sedge's root base is subtle and light, not very deep so questionable for erosion control at this time.
Hay Sedge is a native perennial plant that distinguishes itself with a mass of beautiful silvery green blades.
The long decadent blades do not require any maintenance and present themselves best on the perimeter of ponds, lakes, and other small bodies of water. Gardeners who wish to bring a more inviting look to their yards will be pleased to know that hay sedge requires little to no maintenance and even blooms small yellow flowers usually in the months from September to October.
