In a Nutshell:
* This carex is common throughout southern and central Missouri in the moist soil beside ponds, streams and spring branches and in calcium-rich swampy meadows. Its grass-like leaves grow up to 3' tall from short stout rhizomes.
* The seedheads resemble small sweetgum balls but do not grow above the foliage.
* This sedge is less prone to summer dieback and remains attractive during warm weather. more...
