MN Native / Sedge, Lake

Sedge, Lake

Carex lacustris

 

Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Large clump-forming Minnesota Native grass for lake shorelines. Beautiful in summer, gracefully swaying in the breeze without becoming floppy, and retains good winter interest. A favorite nesting location for waterfowl, and excellent stabilization for shoreline banks. This is a great grass for our 10,000 natural lakes. In the pond, it can be kept in a shallow, wide container for that natural shoreline look. Can be planted in natural waterways.

Size: 3 to 4 feet

Zone: 2-9
