Mt. Cuba Center: Carex for Every Garden - Section A (1.5 CEUs)
Wednesday, February 01, 2023, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST
Category: E-Learning

Carex are a diverse and versatile, yet underutilized genus of native plants that are overflowing with garden merit. They can fill various niches in landscapes as groundcovers and living mulch, while some can even be used on their own as specimen plants. Traditionally thought of as shade perennials, some Carex species exhibit remarkable tolerance to full sun as well, making them a viable and worthy addition to the garden. Sam Hoadley, manager of horticultural research, shares the top-performing Carex from Mt. Cuba’s Trial Garden and discusses strategies and examples of how to successfully incorporate Carex in home gardens.
