Carex lurida from DianeP, SC

Posted on |

Hi, Dr. Hill,
Another pond plant. These photos are from May of this year. Full sun, edge of pond, fall line region. I’d like confirmation that they are native so that I may research them to find out if they have value to wildlife, particularly waterfowl. Thank you, once again, in advance.

Hi Diane,

This is a sedge, most likely Carex lurida which is found throughout the state.
