Carex sprengellii, or Long Beaked Sedge, is an important sedge of upland and moist woodlands in the Upper Midwest and New England. In spring, long stems arise from large bright green mounds and bear numerous pendulant seed heads. Non-rhizomatous, it spreads by seed. Naturally occurring in woodlands, it also thrives in rich soil in full sun.
