Common Name: Cherokee sedge
C. cherokeensis prefers moist conditions but, tolerates some variables. It prefers some shade including dappled light from trees or even just reprieve from the heat of the afternoon sun. The inflorescence has been noted as insignificant but, we like the little wispy spikes that add a bit of interest in the spring. It can be evergreen in milder climates, a harsh cut back may harm. It is better to give a little light haircut to improve its appearance.
