Yellow foxtail scientific name

We found the country's Yellow Fox, but you will have to see it to believe it. SaveSaveSaveSave.Carex annectens, we call Small Yellow Fox Sedge, is also known as Yellowfruit Sedge. The Yellow in the name comes from the spikelet flowers that turn a golden yellow color when in bloom late-spring. Most sedges are cool-season in that they actively grow early, when soil temps are cool. It grows in dense clumps 2 feet tall, 2 feet wide, with narrow grass-like blades making it a nice landscaping choice. Carex annectens prefers full sun exposure and wet to medium-wet soil, but will take part shade and average garden soil (mesic).. Good uses for this sedge would be for lake/pond or stream margins, ditches and seasonal flooding spots, and rain gardens. Birds love the seed of Small Yellow Fox Sedge and so do waterfowl. Caterpillars and other insects will feed on the leaves.

Yellow Fox Sedge is reasonably attractive because of its yellow spikelets and compact tufts of narrow leaves. It is very similar in appearance to the common Brown Fox Sedge (Carex vulpinoidea). However, the spikelets of Brown Fox Sedge are more brown when they become mature. Other differences between these two species include: 1) the leaf blades of Yellow Fox Sedge are shorter than the flowering culms, while the leaf blades of Brown Fox Sedge are often longer than the flowering culms, 2) the perigynia of Yellow Fox Sedge are usually a little larger in size than those of Brown Fox Sedge, and they are more round in shape with shorter beaks, 3) the inflorescence of Yellow Fox Sedge is 3" or less, while the inflorescence of Brown Fox Sedge is occasionally longer than this, and 4) the floral bracts of Yellow Fox Sedge are smaller in size and less conspicuous.

Mohlenbrock (1999, 2003) refers to Yellow Fox Sedge as Carex brachyglossa (which is the name that has been adapted here), while other authorities refer to this species as Carex annectens, Carex annectens xanthocarpa, and Carex xanthocarpa. According to Mohlenbrock, Carex annectens annectens is synonymous with Brown Fox Sedge.The Rosemary Yellow Fox Fur Bomber is perfect for those not afraid to stand out.
