Carex pellita

Common name: Broad-Leaved Woolly Sedge

Native plant

This sedge has a short, tight clumping growth habit and a strong tendency to spread.  Because of its rhizomatous root system, it will form colonies, making it a great choice for erosion protection.  The plant gets its name from its seedheads which have a bristly, grainy appearance.
