This California native is a fast growing clumping sedge. Great for erosion control or at a pond’s edge. Oval-shaped tufts of small reddish-brown flowers on spikes at the tip of the flowering stems. An attractive sedge though it can be invasive. For sunny areas with regular moisture. Attractive container plant too. Deer resistant. Attracts birds.
