Sedge - Common Bur (Carex grayi)
Ornamental sedge that grows in moist environments as slowly spreading clumps. It is an uncommon sedge because it thrives in both woodlands and wetlands, as well as being a great choice for planting along streams. Here at Prairie Moon, this species has thrived in rain gardens that are in full sun and full shade. Gray sedge will also tolerate occasional flooding.
