Carex tumulicola

Berkeley Sedge

This sedge occurs in arid areas from Washington to central California. The dark green foliage forms arching clumps. The small brown flowers are not showy, but provide some textural interest. This plant spreads slowly from rhizomes. Use either in an unmowed, natural form, or as a lawn substitute. It is evergreen in milder areas.
