Trillium Ridge Flora and Fauna
Pennsylvania sedge
Carex pensylvanica
Location: Woods by central path, by path to shed

Fine textured leaves and a creeping habit make this a great lawn alternative for dry soils in shade. Planted one foot on center, it will fill in to form a dense low growing turf that never needs mowing.
