Trapper Creek Farm produces a native sedge, Carex pachystachya for wetlands, marsh areas, river banks, and lakeshore restoration projects. Carex pachystachya is naturally occurring in Alaska, western Canada, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho and Montana.

Trapper Creek Farm soils are the Susitna series (pH 4.6- 5.2). The growing season is approximately 78 days. The snowfall can start any day after October 1, (range of 48-150 inches/season) and snowmelt is late May. Winter temperatures have sometimes reached -56 degrees F. Our Carex pachystachya seed had been successful in arctic and sub arctic environments.


Chamisso sedge grows well 70 miles from Mt McKinley now known as Denali.
