Carex brevior

Sedge, Shortbeak
A common sedge able to grow almost anywhere, most often found in the wild in dry, disturbed areas. Also called Plains Oval Sedge, Shortbeak Sedge actively grows during the spring and fall when soil temperatures are cool like most sedges (cool-season growers). In summer triangular leafy stems rise above low tufts of narrow grass-like foliage. The culms bear prickly green oval spikelets that transition into golden brown seed clusters.Leaf blades are usually about 1’ long and 1/8” wide. The leaf sheaths at the base of each blade has an unusual whitish color and an almost glassy appearance. In late spring multiple leafy culms rise above the foliage to 3-4’. Each culm bears 2-6 oval flower spikes. Each green spikes contain upper pistillate and lower staminate florets. The spikelets are tapered at the base and bluntly pointed at the tip. The flowers transition into reddish brown summer seed spikes. Plants are 1-4’ tall with an equal spread.
