Typically found in savannas, Palm Sedge thrives in wet-mesic to dry-mesic soils and will form robust colonies with consistent moisture. An interesting sedge for the rain garden, its spreading leaf blades resemble palm fronds. Many butterflies, moths and skippers use it as larval food and several species of birds consume the seeds. Caterpillars of several moths, skippers, and butterflies feed on the foliage of Carex spp. (sedges). Many birds eat the seeds or seedheads of sedges. Because Muskingum Sedge is quite robust and often forms colonies, it can provide significant cover to wildlife during the summer. Soil Type: Clay/Loam/Sand Soil Conditions: Wet Mesic-Dry Mesic Flower Color: N/A Height: 3' Light: Part sun to light shade Credits: Info courtesy of Pizzo Native Nursery and illinoiswildflowers.info; Photo courtesy of Julia Bunn
