From NatureServe: There are no data on population trends for G. sedifolia; however, there is currently no evidence of drastic population declines. Originally collected in 1892, then not recollected until 1995 by Sue Komarek. It is likely that other occurrences remain to be discovered, so more species inventory work is needed before the population trend can be accurately assessed (Anderson 2004).
