Prairie Sedge Grass or Carex bicknellii is a versatile and low-maintenance perennial that introduces color and texture. The narrow foliage stands tall, giving this mounded, clump-forming plant a full form. Thin stems stand side-by-side with grassy foliage and feature green flower clusters on the terminal end. The flowers bloom in spring and transition to copper-hued seed pods by fall.

This grass is drought tolerant once established but also makes an excellent addition to a rain garden, allowing for flexible placement options. The height makes this grass well suited to the back of a mixed bed, but it is also an excellent fit for any area needing height and texture. The foliage is deer resistant, providing dependable greenery, and songbirds feed on the seeds during the fall. Grow Prairie Sedge Grass in zones 3 through 7.

Prairie Sedge Grass Care

Plant this ornamental grass in full to partial sun. New plants need regular water, but established plants only need water during an extended dry spell. Prairie Sedge Grass accepts most soil types, but rich, well-drained soil with medium moisture is best. This ornamental grass is not a heavy feeder, but an annual application of slow-release fertilizer each spring will ensure a full and healthy growing season.

Prairie Sedge Grass is easy to maintain; remove dead or damaged growth throughout the growing season. Remove spent foliage in late winter before new growth emerges.

Prairie Sedge Grass Spacing

Prairie Sedge Grass stands 18 to 36 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart to create natural drifts or allow more space so each plant can slowly spread and fill in the empty areas.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
