Dewey (Carex blanda) is the most common and widespread of all members of sect. Laxiflorae. It is often locally abundant and capable of being somewhat weedy in areas where it is frequent. It growns in the most diverse environmental and edaphic conditions of all members of sect. Laxiflorae. Plants of C. blanda from drier or wetter habitats usually produce narrower leaves and/or culms than plants from mesic or shaded habitats. Additional research is needed to determine if these are simply expressions due to environment and edaphic conditions or a complex of closely related species or varieties.
