|Natural range of Cyperus filiculmis from USDA NRCS Plants Database.|
Common name: Southeastern Flatsedge
Synonyms: Cyperus lupulinus ssp. lupulinus; (Cyperus martindalei Brittton The Flora of North America).
A description of Cyperus filiculmis is provided in The Flora of North America.
Cyperus filiculmis is found mainly in sandy soils, both wet and dry, including drying loamy sand, coarse sand, and moist sandy-peaty soil. It prefers sunny, open sites, and occurs in longleaf pine-wiregrass flatwoods and longleaf pine-turkey oak sand ridges. C. filiculumis is seen in disturbed habitats such as power line corridors, clear-cuts, and bulldozed or logged sites.
Associated species includes Pinus palustris, Quercus laevis, and Aristidia stricta.
This species is thought to be dispersed by gravity.
This species is fire tolerant, and has been observed in recently burned pine flatwoods.
