Carex, also known as Sedges, are grass-like plants that are mostly very tough, easy to grow and quite attractive. The Genus Carex includes a wide range of species and cultivars suited to many different garden settings. Most are pest resistant and require only minimal maintenance. Depending on the species, Carex can take sun or shade, or both and varying amounts of moisture. Knowing that shade is difficult for many gardeners, we have selected several to offer you that are particularly suited for shade and that we think are worthy of a place in your garden.
