Some kind of grass...


Not sure what this grass is.  The blade would just about cut you if you were to walk through a patch of it with bare legs.


It was up by the swamp we went to last weekend.

YIKES, I have never seen this. They look like bottle brushes. But they are not the Bottle Brush plant I think.

Cuts from grass like this really burn.

Some sort of sedge, I would think, from its appearance and wetland habitat. Wonderfully crisp photographs.

This sounds like sawgrass (or saw grass).

It does look sharp and I would not want to walk through there but it's all so stunningly beautiful. I love those green pods

Oh my! I have never seen any grass with such fruits! Beautiful Rose! You always share us species that we have never ever seen! This one reminds me of the brushes used to scrub baby bottles :) Sending you hugs for this Thursday dear Rose!

I have been cut by grass blades and it hurts. No way would I go near those grass. But the brushes look pretty.

I have heard about grass like that but have never seen any. It looks interesting. A great close up image.

It looks beautiful but maybe a bit dangerous.

Nicely done. Good work isolating the seed heads.

I took a picture of your picture with the Plant Snap App on my phone and it said it is Longhair Sedge (Carex comosa).

They look like they have self protection. Very rugged.

harry said...

they hang in photogenic formations

Small City Scenes said...

As others have said it is a Sedge also known as Bristly sedge. Botanical name Carex comosa
