Cyperus strigosus from DianeP, SC

Hi, Dr. Hill,
This plant is growing along the edge of a pond in the fall line, full sun. The photo was taken Sept. 26. I’m most interested to know whether or not it has potential value as food for water fowl.

Hi Diane,

it looks like Cyperus strigosus to me – a very common sedge in disturbed wet areas.
