Item added to cart!

Broom Sedge is a clump forming warm-season native grass with an upright habit and dense roots.  The straw colored remnants of the previous stem sheaths  remain at the base of the bright green foliage that turns a brilliant golden copper in fall.   Culms with violet panicles are topped with silky white hairs giving them a feathery appearance in fall. Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.  Excellent drought tolerant once established.
