    California Field Sedge is an adaptable North American native perennial sedge and naturally grows in meadows, prairies, or near water. Carex praegracilis is popular as a lawn alternative in California and can be mowed as low as 4 inches tall, or left unmowed for the wild meadow allure naturally growing 12 inches tall. Also known as Clustered Field Sedge, this fine-textured, strongly rhizomatous, green sedge prefers full sun and forms a spreading carpet that tolerates moderate foot traffic.

    California Field Sedge is not quite drought tolerant but as a lawn alternative plant it requires less water than the traditional lawn and is evergreen in mild moist conditions. Expect summer dormancy in hot, dry climates.

    Your California Field Sedge is not just a turf grass substitute, it is useful on slopes for erosion control, or near edges of a stream or pond, or in bioswales.

    Due to its delicate appearance, Carex praegracilis is an excellent choice for a lawn substitute or low-maintenance grass-like plant! Simply relax and enjoy your new California Field Sedge!
