Carex strictaLam.
accepted accepted accepted
Upright Sedge


CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: Low mucky meadows, swales, and the borders of marshes; common. June-July 15. Newf. to Ont. and Nebr., southw. to Ga. and Tex., including the Coastal Plain. This species is variable in length and width of spikes, in shape of perigynia, and in length, apex, and color of the scales. Some of these variations are apparently due to degree of maturity. The most extreme form has been separated as var. curtissima, but this does not appear to be uniform. So far, it has not been possible to correlate the central New York material with Mackenzies treatment of the group (Bul. Torr. Bot. Club 42:405. 1915). The local forms of this species should receive further study. As var curtissima Peck: In situations similar to the preceding; scarce. Springy places along Fall Creek near Roger Corner. N. B. to Conn, and N. Y.
