Common Name
White-edged Sedge
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Carex debilis Michaux, in part
The map may include some records for Carex flexuosa, which has generally been lumped with C. debilis in previous Virginia floristic studies. Related plants with pubescent perigynia have been called Carex debilis var. pubera Gray and C. allegheniensis Mackenzie. See separate map and comments for that taxon.
Floodplain forests, alluvial swamp hummocks, seepage swamps, bogs, boggy clearings, wet flatwoods, maritime swamps, and depression swamps and ponds; also in disturbed wetlands and low, mesic upland forests. Frequent throughout, but rare above 760 m (2500 ft) elevation in the mountains (see status of Carex flexuosa for a comparison).
