Carex hirtifolia, Hairy Wood Sedge
Pictures to Come!
Hairy Wood Sedge sums it up pretty well, but if you need more, you can often find it growing alongside eastern, central, southern Minnesota woodland trails. Not unlike Common Wood Sedge, it can do well on disturbed sites, like hiking trails, but it won't be found growing in full sun. Hairy Wood Sedge is an excellent species to plant into woodlands after buckthorn removal.
Blooms: green-beige, May into July
Height: 10 to 20 inches
