The Bearded Sedge is a small growth, usually growing every summer to between two and six inches high and has one to three leafed culms or stems that shoot out from its base.

These stems end in a cluster of little spike-like growths. The flat growths themselves are about¼ long. A bunch of these spike growth will usually have from 6 to 10 flowers. These groups are typically either light green, yellowish, or brown. This tiny but sturdy plant is found all over the world in a wide variety of climates but does the best in wet environments.

It is a strikingly resilient plant that even does well in sandy or rocky soils. In every terrain or geographical location, most of its growth takes place during the summer months. It can be found throughout Africa, Asia, Australia, North and South America, and Europe. The Bearded Sedge is part of the Cyperaceae hedge family, a large family that includes more than 2,000 international species.
