Plants arise singly or in groups connected by thick, long rhizomes…Water sedge occurs in wet and boggy meadows, stream banks, and pond and lake margins. It is often found with other wetland herbaceous species  including other sedges (Carex spp.), rushes (Juncus   spp.),  and bulrushes (Schoenoplectus spp.). It can be found in large monoculture stands and also in open areas of riparian sites associated with willows (Salix spp.), cottonwood (Populus spp.), and birch (Betula spp.) plant communities. .This species has exceptional value for shoreline erosion control due to its prolific rhizomatous  root system…
