Cyperus strigosus

Although the leaves are grass-like, this plant is a sedge, not grass. To help tell the difference between rushes, grasses, and sedges, remember the little rhyme about the stems, "Rushes are round. Sedges have edges. Grasses have nodes." As a child, I used these flowers as magical "fairy wands." :) These plants can become a problem weed in flower gardens.
