Description

Tussoc Sedge  

Tussoc Sedge - Carex stricta. The Tussoc Sedge is a type of sedge that has tussocks of straw-colored leaves at the base and bright green new leaves growing from the top. The leaves tend to become about 2½-4' tall and the plant can reach 2 feet in width. The Tussoc Sedge tends to be found in marshes, bogs, wet meadows and is native to the Northern and Eastern U.S. The plant naturally grows best in moist to wet soils. However, the Tussoc Sedge can grow away from bodies of water as long as it is provided with adequate moisture. This plant can also tolerate seasonal flooding and is one of the most common wetland sedges in North America. 

Tussock sedge is an excellent water plant because it thrives well almost anywhere.

The larvae love to nest on this shrub to thrive and feel safe from predators. Carexstricta is a beautiful species of plant that is commonly known as the tussock sedge.
