A tall, broad-leaved sedge of dry areas, this is an often-overlooked species with a preference for disturbed soil. The young upright seedheads are a very attractive golden-brown (May-July), and often persist until eaten by seed-loving songbirds and other wildlife. Excellent wildlife cover! Tolerates drought, sand, gravel, and acid soil, and will often grow along sandy hills, dry meadows, or the lightly-wooded edges of fields, making it quite useful for erosion control in recently-disturbed areas.
