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.
