Found in moist woodland habitats with rich soils, Eastern Star Sedge is a good grass-like groundcover for mesic sites. Eastern Star Sedge is similar to Appalachian Sedge (C. appalachica) in habit, though clumps grow about twice as large.
Plant Eastern Star Sedge in a good forest setting with moist, rich soil for best results - Some dryness is tolerated if infrequent, but a site with dry soil would be better off with Oak sedge (C. pensylvanica).
We currently grow Eastern Star Sedge in 32-Cell deep plug flats. This is an economical way to plant larger areas.
