One of the commoner forms of transition mire is a sedge-dominated habitat typically dominated by sedges (Carex spp.), notably bottle sedge (Carex rostrata), bog mosses (Sphagnum spp.) and other bryophytes, e. g. Calliergon spp. These stands can support just a handful of sparsely distributed broad-leaved plants, such as bogbean (Menyanthes trifoliata), marsh cinquefoil (Potentilla palustris) and marsh St John’s-wort (Hypericum elodes).
