Carex vulpinoidea - FOX SEDGE

No reviews yet
Product Code: CAR-VUL-X
Shipping: Calculated at Checkout
$6.99

Robust wetland sedge for moist to wet soils. Carex vulpinoidea forms regular clumps that have an evergreen look. The leaves are bright green and narrow, and it bears attractive fox tail-shaped seed heads in May/June (don't last long).

Some wetland birds feed on the seeds or seed heads of sedges in wetlands (the Mallard and other ducks, Sora and Virginia Rail, Swamp Sparrow and other granivorous songbirds, Trumpeter Swan, and some sandpipers). The Canada Goose browses on the foliage, and large colonies of this sedge contribute to the habitat of wetland animals and provides a nesting habitat for the Sedge Wren.

Adaptable. In good conditions, it can spread rapidly and form big colonies. Perfect for wet meadows, marshes, roadside ditches, erosion control of wet soils, rain gardens, storm water basins, and along the edges of marshes, springs, lakes and ponds.
