This rush is a perennial that grows on sandy dunes, along salt marshes, and in all types of soils. It is brown and green and grows to almost 5’ tall. Pith filled stems and leaves rise from the base at different angles giving the plant a globe shape. The leaves form a basal sheath around the flower stem leaves and end with a sharp point. The flower stems are less than ¼” in diameter and from 1.5” to 5” long.
