Planting notes. Bristleleaf sedge is happy being planted from spring through autumn. It may slowly form a small colony in ideal conditions: sandy soil that remains consistently moist but not wet, in 50 percent sun and 50 percent shade. It’s very adaptable, so try it almost anywhere — just remember, the more sun it gets, the more moisture it will need. Bristleleaf sedge is shown here growing in Piet Oudolf’s planting for the popular High Line, an abandoned elevated railway in Manhattan that was transformed into an elevated walkable green space.

Lower Level - Plants (Check if native) Carex Eburnia, or Bristleleaf Sedge, Shown here growing in Piet Oudolf’s planting for the popular High Line, an abandoned elevated railway in Manhattan that was transformed into an elevated walkable green space. Grows approx to 6", sun or shade, clay, loam, or sand, perfect between stepping stones. Tucked in gaps in stone walls, or in low traffic areas. More sun means it will need more moisture.

Bristleleaf sedge is a tough plant and is perfect between stepping stones or tucked in among gaps in a stone wall. Soft to the touch and a joy to walk on (use it in low-traffic areas), it adds a lovely bright tuft of green to shady locations in dry to medium-moisture clay or sandy soils.
