Also known as Webberville or Sand Sedge.

Meadow sedge is excellent for unimproved or natural areas. It is cold hardy and very drought tolerant once established. It is semi-evergreen to evergreen and it can be used as a substitute for turf.

Meadow sedge is one of the toughest, sun and drought tolerant sedges. It grows in dry woodlands of cedar elms, Texas persimmon, mesquite, and hackberries. It also grows out in the full sun on the open prairies. Meadow sedge will survive the drought periods, but it will look better if you water it once or twice a month in the summer.

Like all sedges, it will tolerate mowing as long as you don't mow too short. Keep the mowing above 4" and mow just once a season.
