Carex vulpinoidea

Fox Sedge

One of the most common and widespread sedge species in North America, Carex vulpinoidea, known commonly as Fox Sedge for its bushy fox-tail-like inflorescences, is a native obligate wetland species that can often be found along moist streambanks, pond edges, and low-lying meadows. Fox Sedge is a wonderful naturalizer, and is a prime groundcover candidate for wetland restoration and bioremediation projects. Narrow, finely textured blades can reach lengths of 1-3’, often cascading over and creating a windswept visual when planted in large swaths. Carex vulpinoidea is a host plant for various Skipper butterfly species, and the long, thin blades also create a protective shelter and habitat for songbirds, small mammals, and insects.
