Carex squarrosa has a widespread native range, which encompasses the Eastern half of North America. It is found in wet meadows and prairies, flood plains, and forest edges. Narrow-leaved Cattail Sedge has narrow, green foliage and it forms small clumps. Attractive, spikey, green seedheads appear in late spring. Carex squarrosa is useful for ditches, wet areas, and meadows. Tolerates shade. Narrow-leaved Cattail Sedge is also called Squarrose Sedge. Its specific epithet, squarossa, is Latin for “scaly and rough,” perhaps referring to the green, spiky seedheads found on this native sedge.
