Carex brizoides, the quaking sedge or quaking-grass sedge, is a species in the genus Carex, native to central and southern Europe.[2] Even where it is a native species, in disturbed woodlands it tends to behave invasively, forming a thick layer on the forest floor and reducing species diversity.[3][4]
