Common name: Longhair Sedge

Native plant

Slow spreading, erect sedge excellent for wet areas, even tolerates periods of shallow standing water.  Great for use in erosion prevention along banks of waterways. It is a food source for caterpillars of several skippers and moths, beetles and many wetland birds.  Seedheads are more ornamental than many sedges.
