Carex grayi (Common Bur Sedge)


Carex grayi (Common Bur Sedge) has crazy seed heads that look like a medieval mace. Though its bark is louder than its bite, it has a cool blueish hue in its leaves during the summer that gives way to nice orange/pink fall foliage. This sedge’s compact growth lends itself well to a border placement and native landscaped settings.
