Surrounding woods dominated by Tilia americana, Acer saccharum, Quercus (Q. velutina?), Fraxinus (F. nigra?) and Betula papyrifera; largest trees to ca. 12in. DBH. Infructescence drooping, spikelets pendent. Cespitose in large clumps (10 to 20 cm diam). Scarec in openings of algific slope and scattered in surrounding woods, seemingly favoring openings.
