(Question)

Good afternoon.

I have seen a plant at the Toronto Botanical Gardens that I have been searching for 4 years.
I am hoping you can identify it from the pictures attacht.
It is a grass with an small interesting triangular seed pod.
Thank you for your time.

The plant in your photo is a Carex, commonly known as a Sedge.  This particular plant is a self-sown specimen, possibly Carex muskingumensis.  The parent may be the Carex muskingumensis ‘Oehme’, commonly known as Palm Sedge, in the perennial border at the Toronto Botanical Garden.  It has a thin gold edge on the foliage.

We hope that this is helpful.  Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners.
