Carex buxbaumii is a species of sedge known by the common name Buxbaum's sedge.

This sedge grows in clumps from long rhizomes. The stems are 75 to 100 centimeters in maximum height. The leaves are narrow and small. The inflorescence has a bract which is sometimes longer than the spikes. The fruits have dark-colored bracts and a sac called a perigynium which is gray-green and rough in texture.
