Tropical Sedge

Pretty Grass.. , originally uploaded by SavingFLorida.

I find little things like this from time to time..
Sedges are often found everywhere in Florida, because most of Florida is wet. They are often distinguished from grasses and reeds because they have a single stem that branches into long flat blades with a cluster of flower like things in the center. Many sedges in Florida are now invasive and wouldn’t have been what the first peoples recognized. To make things more difficult, eradication of non-natives is unlikely. They propagate underground which makes them difficult to remove entirely.
