The twisted sedge (Carex torta) is part of the Cyperaceae family and is considered a tufted perennial. Its green seeds tend to bloom in late spring, then progressively turn brown as the seasons change. It is why its red-brown basal sheaths often identify it. Each of the plant's primary leaves is three to five millimeters wide with three to four spikes sprouting out of each leaf. These spikes are typically four to five millimeters across. Many people recognize twisted sedge by the cross pattern in its linear leaves. Resembling the shape of the letter M. Each leaf is veinless, giving them maximal flexibility due to the absence of lateral nerves. The stalk of the twisted sedge itself is made up of the fibrous root, and it can grow up to three feet in height.

They reach their optimal potential in wet to moist soil, which is why they often found along sandbanks and river edges. Twisted sedge is commonly planted along the borders of various bodies of water as a preventative method against soil erosion. Since the twisted sedge is a member of the Cyperaceae family, its innate ability to thrive in shaded areas gives it the ability to keep soil healthy and active.
