Blue Sedgeis a short grass-like sedge grown for its foliage color and is a good groundcover. It has blue-green foliage throughout the summer. The foliage will retain its color in milder winters. It forms small, arching clumps that spread slowly outward. It works well as a groundcover and can take light foot traffic. It also works well as an edging for beds. This sedge is low maintenance, needing only a yearly pruning in late winter.
It prefers part shade to full shade and will tolerate some standing water, but it will also tolerate dry areas and drought once established. It does not have any serious pest or disease problems.
