Also known as Bicknell’s Sedge, Copper Shouldered Oval Sedge is one of the few prairie sedges, found in both dry upland and wet river bottom prairies. It is more tolerant of dry soil than other sedges and will grow in full sun to partial shade.

This sedge will green-up in spring, before the warm season grasses begin to grow. The signature copper colored, oval shaped seedheads appear in early summer. The tufted basal growth is usually about two feet high, and the flowering seedhead stalks reach up to three feet.

Useful in rain gardens, bioretention areas, banks & slopes, sedge meadows and garden plantings. Bicknell’s Sedge is listed as endangered in Maine, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
