Gardening Suggestions for Tollway Sedge:

It tolerates full sun to partial shade but has a period of summer dormancy in warmer, drier climates. Moderate water requirements make this plant not quite drought tolerant but certainly lower than most lawn grasses. It is hardy to at least 10 F and likely to come back from the underground rhizomes after lower temperatures. Mix with other bulbs, perennials and grasses to create a natural meadow look. Produced using Forrest Keeling's patented RPM Root Production Method ® technology for exceptional growth and survivability.
