COMMON OAK SEDGE
Common Oak Sedge is native to woodlands and prairies in Illinois. It is an adaptable and hardy sedge that can tolerate sun and shade, clay soils, dry soils, and drought once established. Bright-green, semi-evergreen foliage gives an attractive fine-textured look. Feathery fllowerheads bloom in early spring. Common Oak Sedge makes a great groundcover or can be used as a lawn alternative. Common Oak Sedge is an important larval food source for a variety of butterfly species.
