Description from Possibility Place: Unbranched sedge with a tendency to form clumps.  Unlike many sedges, it is tolerant of drier conditions.  As such, it can be used not only in rain gardens and wetlands but also in dry prairies and prairie gardens.  Seeds heads offer a food source for many native birds, including Horned Lark and Snow Bunting.
