Fox Sedge is great for planting in low ground and tolerates full sun or full shade as well as anything in between! This is a slender bunchgrass-like plant that grows 2-3 feet tall with a cluster of brown seed capsules clinging high on each stem. This is said to make up 25% of the diet of the swamp sparrows.
