Wool Grass can be found in wet locations such as marshes, meadows and swamps. Numerous little spikelets appear to be covered with wool-like hair, hence its common name. Wool Grass grows readily in wet soil, full sun or light shade. It is quite adaptable to regular garden soil and tolerates occasional dry stretches. In the past, native people wove mats and made ropes with its stems and stuffed its cushiony seed heads into pillows.
Wool Grass creates a natural look when planted near water features and ponds. It is often called for in restoration projects. Although people call it a grass, it is actually a sedge, part of the Cyperaceae family.
