Before purchasing please contact us to see which provenance we may have close to you

Habit & Ecology:

Attractive clumping sedge 30-40cm high. Leaves have a distinctive almost white line along its length. This small species inhabits ephemeral ponds and as such now quite rare in Western Sydney where most of its habitat has become housing development or its habitat is no longer ephemeral. 

 Wildlife seen using this species:

Not yet known but expected as most aquatics have close associations with organisms dependent on seed/roots/leaves 

Great shelter plant for frog species

Human uses:

Not known to our knowledge presently 


An undemanding plant thrives in on the edges of ponds in a sunny situation. A great addition to the ephemeral ponds, contact us on how to do this!


Best grown as an emergent water plant, edges of ponds. Would do well in small or large ponds, sealed pots turned into ponds 


Full sun/Morning sun afternoon shade


Humidity from pond or environment should be adequate


Most soils work fine, be careful about soils high in nutrients and not adequately contained in the pot placed in water as nutrients will leach through & promote temporary but potentially damaging algal growth to other pond inhabitants.


Will grow during the warmer months going dormant in the cold. 

Grows well with:

Azolla pinnata, Azolla filiculoides, Hydrocharis dubia, Utricularia aurea, Utricularia gibba
