- Carex stricta Lam.
- Common Name
- Tussock Sedge, Upright Sedge
- C. stricta, in part
- Flora of Virginia Name/Status
- Carex stricta Lam. in J. Lam.
- See also C. emoryi which was subsumed under this species in Atlas lll. The colloquial name "stool sedge" is very descriptive of this plant, especially in the eastern portion of the state where it grows in more stagnant wetlands. Curiously, in the mountain counties it more often forms clones rather than having the signature "stools".
- In a wide range of wetlands, including bogs, fens, seeps, swamps (all types), wet meadows, beaver ponds, depression ponds, freshwater to oligohaline tidal marshes, and floodplain forests. Frequent throughout most of the state; infrequent in the sw. mountains and sw. Piedmont.
