Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Kyllinga sedges are troublesome weeds in turf, lawns, flowerbeds, seasonally wet right-of-ways, vegetable crops, nursery plantings, and container plants. Descriptions, illustrations, and biological information are presented for green kyllinga (Kyllinga brevifolia Rottb.), false green kyllinga (Kyllinga gracillima Miq.), fragrant kyllinga (Kyllinga odorata Vahl), tufted kyllinga (Kyllinga pumila Michaux), and cocks-comb kyllinga (Kyllinga squamulata Thonn. Ex Vahl). Tufted kyllinga is the only one native to North America. The others are non-native or alien weeds that originated in Asia and/or Africa.
