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.
