Soil: Mesic (Medium) to Xeric (Dry)
Type: Cool-season, root system is fibrous and rhizomatous.
A nice landscape plant for shoreline restoration. This is a sedge for drier soil. This one is stiff-like, but finer in texture than many of the sedges. Does not like competition from tall forbes.
Wildlife: Upland gamebirds enjoy the seeds of this sedge. This sedge also provides food for butterfly larvae.
Other info: The root system is both fibrous and rhizomatous.
