Carex pendula. Can be a bit of a thug.

Agree if its Carex pendula - it will self seed and you'll be dealing with seedlings for years afterwards

Looks like Carex pendula. Get rid of it while you still can!

Carex pendula! lucky you. The first one in a garden is really pretty but by number 500 you start getting tired of them!

Hello
Without seeing the entire plant, I cannot be sure, but could it be Carex pendula?

Hi, Looks like a Carex pendula, which grows vigorously in our climate. Watch out for seedlings, as they can get everywhere. But it can be useful in a border as it will usually stay evergreen.

Hello Judi. I'm not sure but I think it's Carex pendula? Like you I've wondered, I'm interested to know too. Most gardens in my area have it - it's worst to remove from clay I've found - I've bent spades! Resorted recently in a new garden to using a crowbar :-)

Many thanks, Kathy - seeing as they are so huge, can they be cut back with a hedge trimmer to make the dividing more manageable?

Hi,
It sounds like your Carex are ready for dividing. When they start looking messy (and maybe the middle is dying out?) that means the clumps are overcrowded and need to be split up. Divide in autumn or spring and give them some time to establish so they can get back to their former glory. If you haven't already, add this to your list of 'Plants I Have' to know when/how to keep them looking their best. This video on Shoot will tell you how to best divide your plants. http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/article/video-how-to-divide-plants
All the best!

taming carex pendula

Question from Lucy

In forum: Carex pendula

I have several of these thuggish plants in my garden - they're 3-4 years old and are looking a mess. Is there a good time of year to cut them back without killing them and can I use a hedge trimmer? Will they ever look as good as they did in their first year?
