Carex divulsa subsp. divulsa
A tufted perennial herb, tolerating a wide range of soils, except those which are markedly acidic, and found in hedge banks, scrub, along woodland borders and paths, on roadsides and in rough, open grassland. Lowland.
Native. Subsp. divulsa was mapped as C. polyphylla in the 1962 Atlas. The overall range seems to be stable. It is now better recorded in many areas but not mapped in some vice-counties where recorders have failed to distinguish the two subspecies of C. divulsa.
European Southern-temperate element; the species is mapped by Hultén & Fries (1986).
