Carex bicknellii, Bicknell's Sedge
Pictures to Come!
Another good savanna, prairie and sand prairie sedge with loose clumps of dark green, thin blades and stems for medium to dry, well-draining soils. It is also known as Copper-shouldered Oval Sedge. Apparently Bicknell's Sedge will tolerate moist prairie conditions as well, but I have not tried to confirm.
Blooms: May into June
Height: 24 - 42 inches
Conditions: sun to pt sun, moist-medium to medium dry, well-draining soils
