Low-growing sedge with cream blooms in late spring. God in woodland settings near ponds and along rocks. Moderate grower. Late spring/summer blooms. Can withstand light traffic. 6" tall. Hardy to zone 4.

This is a STEPABLES plant. It is evergreen here in zone 5a. It is for a light foot traffic area; walked on 1-2 times weekly.
