Carex limosa is a perennial grasslike herb (rhizomatous) that is native to California, and also found elsewhere in western North America.California Rare Plant Rank: 2B.2 (rare, threatened, or endangered in CA; common elsewhere).
[Wikipedia] Distribution, Description: Carex limosa is a species of sedge known as bog-sedge, mud sedge, and shore sedge.
This sedge is an aquatic or shore plant which can most often be found in peat bogs in mountains. It is widely distributed across North America and northern Eurasia.
Carex limosa has a large rhizome and hairy roots. It produces a stem which is generally just under half a meter in height and has a few basal leaves which are long and threadlike. The tip of the stem is often occupied by a staminate spikelet, and below this hang one or more nodding pistillate spikelets. Some spikelets may have both male and female parts, however. Each fruit is a few millimeters long and spade-shaped. (contributed by Mary Ann Machi)
