Carex is a very versatile species, it looks great when mass planted, is hardy for constructed wetlands, used as an ornamental in rain gardens or dry river bed gardens, for poolside plantings or as a revegetation species of riparian zones or to be used as a soil stabiliser.  It also provides a habitat for water birds and frogs and attracts butterflies and leaves used by the Indigenous Australians for weaving and basket making.
