Hay Sedge is registered with the United States government as a threatened plant in the state of Tennessee. Hay Sedge is found mostly in forests and is a perennial plant. Hay Sedge does prefer to grow in sandy or rocky dry soil but can be found in fertile, moist soil and is considered a grass or rush. Hay Sedge is not very showy and grows from the end of May to the middle of September in most areas it is. Hay Sedge does not have a blossom to speak of but does have a bud of grassy, spiny, spiked tufts that are green, yellow, or red to brown and turn to seeds that will germinate the following year and spread. This green tuft can be seen from May to July. Hay Sedge will grow to 6-35 inches before dying out. Hay Sedge's root base is subtle and light, not very deep so questionable for erosion control at this time.
