Carex hassei L.H. Bailey[FNA23, HC2, SPNW]
false golden sedge

Publication: Bot. Gaz. 21: 5. 1896.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: SPNW: "Taxonomy of Carex hassei and relatives is controversial. It has often been merged with C. aurea and/or northern and eastern C. garberi. Even treated as a separate species, C. hassei has more variation than is typical of most Carex species. Variants include coastal CA plants called C. saliniformis; serpentine plants of NW CA and SW OR with a mix of 2 and 3 stigmas; small neat plants of alkaline springs in NV; and plae, robust plants of the San Bernadino Mts. of S CA."
