Plant Highlights

Native perennial. Prefers wet soil, clay or gravel. Good seasonal stream stabilizer but spreads profusely and can become invasive. Slender, grass-like leaves grow from the base of the stem, the flowers are golden- brown colored, with the rays extending out from a central point with clusters of spikelets on the ends. Flowers and fruits spread out in feathery spikes almost like the ends of an umbrella (thus the name umbrella sedge).
