Pointed Broom Sedge 

Pointed Broom Sedge (carex scoparia) is a widely distributed perennial sedge. A type of grass-like plant with triangular stems, seen throughout most of the United States, where it grows from coast to coast. It can also be found in southern Canada, and even in New Zealand as well as parts of Europe as an introduced species. 


 It prefers part shade, although quickly adapts to thrive in full sun. Pointed Broom Sedge's habitats vary but share a common characteristic of where the soil is especially wet. It can be seen in gravelly or sandy seeps, marshes, wet prairies, portions of ponds and streams, and also roadside ditches. It does well in an area that requires erosion control, as it can adjust to varying types of soils.


 This sedge can reach anywhere from one to two feet tall. During the Pointed Broom Sedge's flowering period that lasts from May to July, the culms (flower-bearing stems) reach upwards of three feet tall and bear tiny spikes that reach half an inch with alternating leaves. Each stem consists of 5 - 10 tiny spikes that are about under an inch each in length. There are times where the spikes are crowded together along the central stalk, but on occasion, they will grow far enough from one another that they do not overlap. The spikes start as light green, but as they age, they become tan.


 With how tall the Pointed Broom Sedge becomes, it makes for a great home and food source for songbirds in wet landscapes.
