Green seedheads turning to dark brown

Very hardy native. Zone 2.

Edging, ground cover, shade beds

Should definitely be more widely used. Tolerates drought, shade, poor soils. Fine textured, spreading but not invasive. Plus, I've read that it is deer resistant. Perhaps a nice alternative to Penn Sedge.
