A native grass-like sedge that grows in moist low grounds and withstands fluctuating levels of water. It produces an abundance of seeds which are consumed by wildlife along with the plant. The roots form a thick mass which help with erosion control. Sow on or near the surface.  Best planted in fall.

Dense sedge blooms in the spring and is pollinated by the wind.
