Carex typhina
Common Name: Cattail Sedge
Cattail Sedge is a clump-forming sedge native to Missouri. It is found in deciduous forested wetlands and wet prairies. It grows in moist to wet conditions in full sun to part shade. Cattail Sedge flowers from April to September, producing 1-6 cylindrical spikes per stem. The flowers can be up to 2 inches long and 1 inch broad. It gets its name either from the shape of the flowers, which look like a bushy cat's tail, or because it resembles the cattail plant (Typha latifolia).
