Carex pallescens L.[FNA23, HC2, SPNW]
pale green sedge

Publication: Sp. Pl. 2: 977. 1753.

Origin: Introduced

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: Populations in Clark Co. and in sw BC are recent introductions in disturbed sites. SPNW: "The idea that the NE WA and N ID populations of C. pallescens are native is plausible because they grow in relatively undisturbed wet meadows with other apparently native plants that are from eastern N America. Introduced populations are to be looked for in disturbed wet meadows elsewhere in the PNW."
