Tufted sedge to 60 cm grows in swamps and on creek banks.

Clumping grass to 1 m with arching deep green blades. Creates a good low maintenance cover especially for moist or boggy areas. Attracts seed-eating birds. Sun, semi-shade.

Interchangeable with a number of Carex species which are hard to tell apart without the flowering parts in hand.
