San Diego sedge. This California native is perhaps one of the showiest native sedges and boasts evergreen clumps of distinctive blue-green foliage to 5’ tall. Plants are somewhat slow to establish, but spread with time by rhizomes in a non-invasive fashion. Chocolate brown flowering spikes appear in spring above the foliage. Plant in full sun or part shade in any moisture-retentive soil; San Diego sedge is particularly reliable along streamsides and waterways. Provide an occasional shearing to remove old duff. Hardy to 10F. Southern California, Baja and Arizona.
