If you're looking to try or add more sedges to your native landscape, Sprengel's Sedge is an excellent candidate.
Preferring partial to full sun locations, it's most often found in low-lying areas in woodlands with adequate sunshine. It prefers richer soils but is also very tolerant of drier upland conditions.
Sprengel's Sedge reaches 12-14 inches in height in drier upland sites but can grow as tall as 36 inches in height in really rich sites.
Virginia Waterleaf, and taller ones such as Early Meadow Rue.
This photo is of a large cluster of Sprengel's Sedge at a local park. It's on an uplands site in a Oak Woodland where it's very sunny due to a break in the canopy.
