Carex – The How, What, Where & Why
February 18, 2022
Carex: it’s estimated that the total number of species varies from about 1,100 to almost 2,000. Here at Midwest Groundcovers, we grow over 40 different Carex species in our product line. We primarily focus on the Carex species that are native to Illinois, however it can be challenging for even the best ecologists to identify these plants in the wild, and where they will thrive in the landscape. Such feedback from visitors and customers alike is why we created the Carex Classroom. This webinar will showcase some of the standout Carex varieties we carry and the conditions they thrive in.
