This Southeastern native is a very exotic looking Carex - so much so that it was placed in a separate genus Cymophyllus but recent DNA work confirms it is a Carex.  The wide green semi-horizontal leaves look far more exotic than a grass and the truly unusual white flowers just adds confirmation.  Shade and moist, these are divisions from our plant of many years which is important as this is threatened in the wild by habitat loss and grazing.
