Help with Carex Crinita or Fringed Sedge

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 10:51

I have Carex pendula and C. riparia, they get cut right back. If it's anything like those it will just bounce back

I'd fence it off till the kids are older, it will be a good educational opportunity for them.

A chance for you to overcome your fears as well. Fears can be overcome.

I'd like to believe it but predictions don't have a reputation for accuracy.

Weren't we going to have a hard winter? Some may have done but we had one snowfall of about an inch and a lowest temperature of 5.8C. 

Very few days when we couldn't work outside.

I agree. I had 3 that I cut right back. They did regrow from the base but only to die, one the following year and two in the next year. They only made spindly, floppy growth and wouldn't have been very attractive if they had survived.

It may be early for leaves but I'd expect flowers unless it's a very young specimen that hasn't started flowering yet.

I don't think the bark scraping tells much initially, only when it's been dead for a while

Snip it back all over but keep it narrower at the top so the bottom isn't shaded
