Squarrose sedge is a grass-like plant of wet meadows, marshes, and swamps with a compact, upright form and a seedhead that looks like a medieval mace. Pretty in flower, it compliments native plantings and restorations with its vertical architecture and structural strength. Host plant for the Appalachian brown butterfly. Deer resistant.
