( California Meadow Sedge )
|C. pansa, a member of the Sedge family (Cyperaceae) is as widespread as the grass family, but are especially common in wet or moist habitats in temperate and subarctic zones. The stems of sedges are solidly filled with pith, and do not have nodes. They are triangular in cross section. The leaves are arranged in three rows, with sheaths usually fused around the stem. Leaf blades of sedges are usually grass-like; with evergreen or semi-evergreen foliage. Sedges are wind-pollinated, with flower-heads almost always in spikelets. This has rich green foliage, to 6 inches if unmowed. Spreads sufficiently by rhizome to form a solid carpet. Good alternative to turf grass lawns.
Important Info : Summer dormant unless watered in warmer, drier regions.
