The Pennsylvania, or Yellow, Sedge is one of the first to flower in our area. It is a species of well-drained upland habitats, in full to partial sun. It forms clumps and colonies with its rhizomatous root system. The plants frequently top out at 12 inches or less, but when in flower the dark reddish spikes with whitish stamens and stigmas is quite striking. The plants remain green all summer. It is indigenous to the Wildflower Garden.
