Despite its rugged disposition and typical habitat, broom sedge does make a nice garden plant. It is especially useful in naturalistic plantings, where it forms stoutly upright clumps, very narrow as well. It can be found both in very dry and wet, boggy locations – broom sedge is an excellent plant for the soggy soil at the edge of ponds.

Broom sedge offers good fall color, typically a burnt orange, and it holds its color through the winter. On dryer sites, Broom Sedge can be mixed with Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) to good effect; the Little Bluestem is typically more arching while the broom sedge is very upright in form.

Ecologically, Broom sedge is important for stabilizing the soil on recently burned sites. It yields protection for birds and small animals to reclaim the sites, and the new blades offer forage for animals.
