Carex vulpinoidea

Fox sedge

Carex vulpinoidea is a tall bunching native sedge, widespread across the southeast. It grows best in wet, sunny areas. It has slender leaves and elongate, brown seed heads that appear in the spring. Like any of our Carex species, Carex stricta works well in several different applications: wetland mitigation, stream restoration, constructed wetland, or as a rain garden plant.
