Creeping Broad-leaved Sedge Growing and Maintenance Tips
This sedge tolerates partial to full shade in a moist, well-drained soil. Provides good contrast in low borders and near water features. They can be divided in early spring or early fall. In early spring, the plants benefit from a "combing" with a gloved hand. 'Snow Cap' can be planted in areas with greater sun exposure, providing they do not dry out.
