Colloquially referred to as the Creek Sedge. The Carex amphibole is a fast-growing sedge plant commonly used as ground-cover in forests and near rivers and streams. The Creek Sedge is a perennial and is one of more than 1,800 sedge plants belonging to the Carex family.

 

 Similar to its many Carex relatives, the Creek Sedge grows in both Canada and the United States and thrives environments as far North as Quebec and as far south as Georgia and Texas. This sedge prefers soil with a pH of less than seven and grows in many types of forests. As the name Creek Sedge would suggest, this plant is also very common among creeks and on the shores of lakes. Furthermore, the Creek Sedge also thrives in American woodlands and near floodplains across the Midwestern United States. 

 

 The Creek Sedge grows best in the United States Department of Agricultural Plant Hardiness Zones 3-9. Leaves of the Creek Sedge have a laminated deep green sheen and grow to a maximum length of between 10 inches and 12 inches. The blooming season for the Creek Sedge occurs in the later months of Spring, usually taking place between the first weeks of April and the last weeks of May. 

 

 The flowers produced by the Creek Sedge typically bare the same shiny green color as the leaves.
