Native plant

Wool grass is another in the pantheon of the Scirpus complex. Getting to 4 or 5 foot, this plant, like others in the genus, thrive in moist and wet areas with standing water for parts of the year, if not all year. The seed heads on this plant are rather interesting, being that they are large, held close to the stem and are reddish in color.
