"All species of Carex are perennials.[2] They typically have rhizomes,stolons or short rootstocks, but some species grow in tufts (caespitose). [2] The culm – the flower-bearing stalk – is unbranched and usually erect.[2] It is usually distinctly triangular in section.[2] The leaves of Carex comprise a blade, which extends away from the stalk, and a sheath, which encloses part of the stalk.[2] The blade is normally long and flat, but may be folded, inrolled, channelled or absent. [2] The leaves have parallel veins, and where the blade meets the culm, there is a structure called the ligule.[2] The flowers of Carex are small and are combined into spikes, which are themselves combined into a larger inflorescence. The spike typically contains many flowers, but can hold as few as one in some species.[2] Almost all Carex species are monoecious; each flower is either male (staminate) or female (pistillate).[2] A few species are dioecious. Sedges exhibit diverse arrangements of male and female flowers. Often, the lower spikes are entirely pistillate and upper spikes staminate, with one or more spikes in between having pistillate flowers near the base and staminate flowers near the tip.[3] In other species, all spikes are similar. In that case, they may have male flowers above and female flowers below (androgynous) or female flowers above and male flowers below (gynecandrous). In relatively few species, the arrangement of flowers is irregular."
