Carex bromoides Willd.
Common Name: SEDGE
Coefficient of Conservatism: 6
Coefficient of Wetness: -3
Wetness Index: FACW
Physiognomy: Nt P-Sedge

Wet or less commonly upland forests, borders of ponds in forests, moist thickets and banks, moist meadows and swales.

The graceful, spreading tussocks of fine foliage are a characteristic feature of many swamps, especially in southern Michigan. The pistillate scales are frequently tinged with orange, and the leaves are narrower than in Carex deweyana. Carex bromoides can be hard to key because the distribution of male and female flowes in the inflorescences can be erratic; some being essentially unisexual.
