Pest Details

Fascicled Beaksedge

Origin:

Another native sedge species, found from Texas east to Florida, and north to Virginia.

Biology:

A perennial that reproduces from seeds, but also spreads by means of rhizomes. Found along roadsides and in disturbed areas, especially those with very wet soils.

Identification:

Mature plants can be clump forming, with numerous stems and leaves growing to nearly 2 feet in height, and these are narrow and sometimes nodding. The flower head is a small, compact group of flowers at the end of the stems, with a short, almost spine-looking bract rising vertically on one side of it. The several flower groups are short and composed of just a few flowers, and these also have a spiny appearance to their outer ends.

Characteristicts Important to Control:

A systemic herbicide would be most effective in killing both foliage and rhizomes of this weed.
