These are wetland sedges with prickly spikelets. The narrow leaves are light or medium green and arranged in loose or open tufts. In late spring triangular culms rise above the foliage to 3’ bearing the green bottlebrush shaped spikelets and the resulting brown seed spikes. This cool season sedge flourishes in sun or part sun but goes dormant during hot weather. Plants favor wet or consistently moist soils and tolerate seasonal flooding. Foliage is 2' tall with flower 3'.
