You can find Fox Sedge (Carex Vulpinoidea) growing naturally in moist to wet soils along rivers, streams, lakes and a variety of wetland areas.  With the abundance of natural wetlands, it’s no wonder Fox Sedge is one of Minnesota’s most widespread and abundant native sedges.  Growing in densly-packed bright green clusters, Fox Sedge has thin, firm, three sided stems ranging from 12-36″ in height.  Seed forms in attractive, tightly packed spiked clusters with a yellow to pale orange color.  The seed clusters resemble a fox tail, which where it gets its name.

An excellent source of habitat for many different insects, pollinators, and other wildlife.  

It’s the perfect addition to any wetland edge, rain garden, or shoreline restoration project.


Don’t forget to add the Sedge!

The addition of native sedge or grass to any native wildflower garden has many benefits!  Native sedges and grasses provide support and protection for wildflowers.  They establish a ground cover to help prevent unwanted weeds from growing. They create a more natural environment and pollinator habitat and increase the overall fullness and beauty of wildflower gardens. MNL makes it easy to add native sedges and grasses by offering Short and Tall Prairie Grass kits, single species trays of native grasses and sedges, and a broad variety of sedge and grass options on our Build-A-Kit.  Save $10 when you pair a grass kit or single species tray to your wildflower plant kit order!
