Gray Sedge (Carex grayi) has greenish yellow to brown seed heads that look like spiked clubs and are attractive in both fresh and dried flower arrangements. The fruits remain on the plant in winter, adding an interesting accent when the shadows reflect on snow. The grass-like leaves, which are up to 1/2" wide, are semi-evergreen.Gray sedge grows best in moist fertile soil in full sun, but will tolerate light shade. It thrives at or near water.
