This plant hails from the species of the sedge family. Sometimes it is commonly referred to as Penn sedge. Its other names include common oak sedge, new sedge, and yellow sedge. According to the census of literature, Pennsylvania sedges found in Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec, located in Canada, are massively distributed in the United States of America. The plant is found in large monotypic stands. It is vegetative and spreads like rhizomes. The plant also distributes itself like clumps of malts with longer rhizomes that form wide attached colonies. Its formation in the farm creates perfect ground covers in a savannah-like forest. Mainly, Pennsylvania sedge grows in resistant grazing lands. Pennsylvania sedge typically grows in large clumps. They are naturally shorter, depending on the weather. The plants are monoecious. This means that they come in spikelets representative of male and female flowers.
