Comments: Carex laxiculmis 'Hobb'- Bunny Blue® Sedge is native to Eastern North America. Foliage is evergreen in warmer climate and semi-evergreen in the northern states.

Flowers yellow but insignificant, appearing in late Spring. Carex will grow in average soil, with adequate irrigation, but really thrives in moist to wet soil. Carex Blue Bunny® grows best in shade. If exposed to partial sun, be sure to water often. Cut back foliage in late Winter.

When planted around streams and pond banks, it helps to control erosion.
