Carex appressa, commonly known as Tall Sedge, is a species of perennial plant in the Cyperaceae family. It is native to Australia and New Zealand, and is commonly found in wetlands, swamps, and along riverbanks.
Tall Sedge has ong, thin leaves and a clumping habit. It produces flowering stems that are topped with clusters of small, brown or yellowish flowers. The plant prefers moist to wet soils and full to partial sun, and is tolerant of seasonal flooding.
Tall Sedge is often used in wetland restoration projects, as it is a hardy and fast-growing plant that can help stabilize soil and improve water quality. It is also used in landscaping, particularly in rain gardens or other areas where drainage is poor.
