Carex pensylvanica is a lovely but fairly common sedge of mesic or dry woods.  Plants form large colonies from long strong rhizomes.  Foliage is deep green, semi-evergreen and about 1’ long with narrow glossy blades.  In early spring whitish spikelets are held above the leaves. In the wild, this sedge occurs in partial sun or shade in well drained or dry acidic woodlands.  In landscape situations, Carex pensylvanica is an excellent groundcover or lawn substitute for the shade garden. 

Plants are indigenous to upland woods, open wooded bluffs and slopes, clearings in woods, oak savannas and upland prairies.  Commonly called oak sedge because plants often occur in dry woods where oaks are prevalent.
