Thanks, Kevin. I looked at hundreds of Google's countless images of sedge,
papyrus, reed, rush, grass and did not see anything that closely resembled
it. It is a beauty and I will save its seeds this year; will try planting
them along the shoreline of my wet weather ponds and a special planting in
a wet area of the yard. It arrived by seed and should go forth and multiply
the same way.
All the Google image pages for those plant species are a real treat to
spend time with, like hours, beautiful landscapes and natural
area in wild settings. Here is a special high tech one: Live Wire Fiber
Optic Grass Plant.
