Brome Sedge is a tussock-forming sedge with fine, airy foliage and gently arching leaves. Native to wet woodlands, bogs and moist meadows, it tolerates periods of shallow standing water, and is best grown in evenly moist or wet soils. Light shade with plenty of organic matter is ideal. The dried remnants of older leaf blades persist around the base, and over time will contribute to the formation of the tussock. Found growing East of the Mississippi, Brome Sedge is most common in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and the Great Lakes Region. Typical habitats include vernal pools and seeps in wooded areas, on the edges of marshes, and sedge meadows.

Planting and Cultivation Notes
