A very little known sedge that is once in a while used for prairie resoration. It had very little characteratic interest for those who have average garden interests but for those who are collectors or native plant grower this is the plant for you! For me it grows in woodland clearing - get 4 to 5 hours of direct sun without any ill effects. It hadn't bloomed for me yet. It is also called Plains Oval Sedge due to the shape of the flowers. A few native nurseries sell it.
