Sedge: Rush-Like Family:-

Sedge: Rush-Like Family are "unbranched grass-like or rush-like perennials, very rarely annuals, wiith unstalked leaves usually linear but sometimes reduced to sheaths. Flowers minute, generally grouped in spikelets, with the petals and sepals reduced to bristles, and often with a scale-like bract (glume) at their base. Several spikelets may form a flower-head. The anthers often hang out as tufts of bright yellow. Fruit a nutlet. Members of the Sedge Family differ from Rushes and Woodrushes in having no petals or sepals in their flowers, which are often separetly male and female. From Grasses they can be told by the stems being often 3-sided and never hollow; the leaves not being jointed at their junction on the stem (where there are therefore no knots) with their sheaths, which are usually closed. " from Collins Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers by David McClintock and R.S.R. Fitter assisted by Francis Rose - ISBN 0 00 219363 9 - Eleventh Impression 1978

Black Cyperus

(Brown Galingale)

Cyperus fuscus

July-September

An annual of moist, open disturbed ground around the margins of ponds and by ditches, often on ground subject to winter-flooding. The substrate may be peaty, muddy or stony but humus-rich. Seed may not be set in cool summers. It is very rare by a few muddy ponds in Southern England, much increasing there in dry seasons.
