Looking for a tropical look with natives, (probably not :-) but if you are, look no further. Carex muskingumensis (Palm Sedge) is a short native that has excellent foliage for textures in home landscaping in many applications. Its variable shade and moisture tolerances make it an excellent tool in the landscaper’s toolbox. Plant in semi-shade areas and rain gardens. Install this plant in large groups to make a dramatic textured effect and a medium sized groundcover.
