Fimbristylis caroliniana (Carolina Fimbry)


Sharing is caring!


This native sedge has 1 foot tall foliage and 3 foot tall flower stalks. It grows in salt marshes and dune swales, spreading by stolons to form large loose colonies. The colonies bind the soil together and reduce  erosion. It also occurs in pine flatwoods and pine savanna. Birds and small mammals love Fimbry. They eat the seeds, hide from predators among the colonies and use it for nesting material as  as well.  Some species of Fimbry are used to make baskets, I would like to find out if anyone has experience weaving with Carolina Fimbry.  This species is native to NJ, DE, MD, VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, and AL, Mexico and the West Indies. Some sources include NY as well. We propagated our plants from native populations in Beaufort Co., SC.
