Product Description

Broom Sedge (Carex Scoparia) native perennial sedge is 1

This native perennial sedge is 1½–2½' tall, forming tight bunches of flowering culms with alternate leaves. Vegetative shoots are relatively uncommon. The culms of the fertile shoots are erect to ascending; they are light to medium green, slender, stiff, and 3-angled. Each culm is rough along its margins underneath the inflorescence. During the flowering period, 3-4 leaves occur along the lower half of each culm, while older leaves have withered away. The ascending to widely spreading leaf blades are up to 10" long and 3 mm. (1/8") across; they are light to medium green, hairless, and slender. The leaf sheaths wrap tightly around the culm; the mouth of each sheath is membranous and concave, forming a "U" shape.
