Carex tumulicola (Berkeley Sedge) - This sedge is an evergreen grass-like plant that forms arching clumps, 12-18 inches tall by 2 feet wide. It is a very versatile plant for use in coastal full sun to fairly deep shade. It tolerates boggy wet soils, but is also fairly drought tolerant once established. The plant seems happiest when planted in light shade with regular to occasional irrigation. However, can thrive in areas that are rarely irrigated, though somewhat smaller. Greenish flowers scattered along an arching unbranched peduncle age to brown from winter through spring, and can be sheared off to neaten the plant and prevent reseeding - otherwise expect this plant to seed out into the irrigated areas of the garden. A great clumping plant for use in solid stands or combined with other sedges, grasses and herbaceous plants for a natural meadow look.
