 Tussock Sedge is a tufted native aquatic grass with evergreen foliage.  Its new fountain-like foliage is a bright green, which grows above its old straw-like leaves that are retained for a year creating a layered effect.  In spring clumps rise above the foliage and when the green flowers mature they are replaced by chocolate brown seed clusters.  Prefers partial sun and wet soils.
