Wooden Surface

Carex lupulina

Hop Sedge is a visually interesting specimen. Showy spikelets that resemble the seed pods of hops sit atop flares of thick green blades.


This sedge thrives in wetter soils, so consider this a perfect addition to a rain garden. Hop Sedge is useful in bio-conservation efforts in shoreline restorations as erosion control.


Unlike the Fringed Sedge, this variety is widespread throughout Massachusetts.
