This beautiful sedge is one of the most widespread species of carex in North America. The common name comes from the seed heads that mature in late summer and resemble fox tails. The arching, glossy foliage is especially attractive grown in large groups. They are perfect for moist soil, erosion control and rain gardens. Birds will eat the seed but deer tend not to eat this plant. They are even resistant to black walnuts.

Thrives in partial/full sun. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Cut back aging foliage in late winter, before spring flowering. Outstanding when massed in the landscape.
