Carex flacca ‘Blue Zinger’ Sedge

Northcreek Nursery features this blue sedge as a tough landscape plant. It is hardy in zone 4 and has lived many years at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Shown below is Carolyn, a landscape gardener preparing to mow this sedge for spring cleanup. The mower blade is set high, at about 4″. The bed was then raked and the plants regrew quickly.
