Carex hystericina
Carex hystericina
Common Name: Bottlebrush Sedge
Bottlebrush sedge gets its name from its characteristic flower spikes which are present from June to August. This species is a good choice for stream banks, pond edges, and swales, especially in calcareous areas. Bottlebrush sedge forms clumps and has broad leaves. The stems are sharply triagonal and are tinged reddish-purple at the base. A slender spikelet of male flowers is located above the larger female spikelets. This sedge is most abundant in the Ozark Highlands and the Osage Plains, but is found in only a few counties in the Central Dissected Till Plains and the Mississippi Alluvial Basin.
