The Gray’s Sedge (Carex grayi) is a flowering plant in the Cyperaceae family of sedges. It is also known as Mace Sedge. 

It is native to North America.

It grows to 60-00 centimetres (24-36 inches) tall.

It has long, evergreen, sharp, thin bright-green leaves. 

Its seed heads are pale-green. It is called Mace Sedge because these spiked club-shaped seed heads look like maces, which is a close-combat, bronze hand-held weapon at the end of a chain with short, sharp spikes.

It blooms from spring to fall.
