An At-A-Glance Guide to Rushes and Sedges

Rushes and Sedges are grass-like plants identified by their stems. Rushes have round stems whereas sedges are generally triangular. "Sedges have edges, rushes are round." Here is our collection of photographs for you to peruse.

Clicking on the images will open up a pop-up window with a larger photograph,
so please make sure you have your pop-up stopper turned off.
