New weed?
« on: July 07, 2014, 09:16:38 AM »
I walk my property pretty often. There are always new things popping up. This year I discovered 5 mulberry trees I didn't know I had.

Most things I can identify. This is new to me entirely. Never saw anything like it. It's about 12 inches tall. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Stalk has a triangle shaped cross section?

ETA: Looks like a type of sedge.

Nailed it. Thank you. This is in an area that was torn up by the mud bog. It stands out against all the other grasses and weeds. It is the only one I saw too.

Went back down and yes it is a triangular stalk.

 guess we created a sedgeland LOL!
