Key to Genus Kyllinga L.

Sedges in the Genus Kyllinga are common garden and lawn weeds in Hawai‘i, typically occurring in disturbed areas on all the main Islands. These small plants spread aggressively via a creeping rhizome. Two naturalized species occur in Hawai‘i and the plants always seem to be in flower, making them easy to recognize and identify to species.
