Three Seeded Sedge is a Grass-Like Perennial

Three-Seeded Sedge: Carex trisperma: This grass-like perennial fruiting plant is native to Canada and a large section of the Northern United States, ranging from Minnesota to New England. It thrives in moist environments such as coniferous swamps, bogs, and wet woods and does well in partial shade.

It can root in moss. The plant stands tall with stalkless spikes and alternating leaves growing towards the base. The fruiting season runs from late spring to mid-summer, with the pistillate spikes growing clusters of green seeds. The stalks grow from 1 – 3 feet and provide a natural habitat for woodland animals.

Three-Seeded Sedge Thrives in Wetlands and Lake Edges

It likes shade and mostly does well there. It is a smooth and hairless variety. This perennial herb spreads underground with rhizomes (stems). It can grow as tall as 1 meter. The fruit is usually from mid-June to late August. It would do well on stream banks, wetlands, and lake edges. This plant has a lovely green color.

These sedges have berries that grow on them in the spring. The berries on this grass are edible, but they are very sour and not soft. This native grass is easily adaptable and can grow anywhere it plants, if wet and moist. This plant has no hairs on the stems or branches.

It loves to grow in wet, shaded areas, around trees, and along river banks. This plant has small flowers which will bloom from June to August. It is better to plant in large clumps. The stems change from light green to dark brownish as they mature. Growing in climate zones 3 to 9 makes this a very versatile plant. It is a small grower but does well around lakes and ponds.
