Genus: Fimbristylis
Common names: Common Fringe-sedge
ALA reference

This sedge is widespread around the world and grows as an annual or short-lived perennial. Most of the plants I’ve seen look as if they have come up as an annual this year, probably following the rain. The plant pictured is growing amongst Oplismenus aemulus with some Cat’s claw and Asparagus weeds. (March 2008)
