Carex grayi, or Bur Sedge, is a beautiful ornamental sedge, suitable for pond margins, water features, or any setting with consistent moisture. The remarkable spiked flowers form star-like seed heads which persist into autumn and winter for extended seasonal interest. The unique seeds are a source of food for waterfowl as well as songbirds, making this a good sedge species for the water garden or wildlife garden. Bur Sedge spreads slowly to form an attractive clump in medium to wet soils.
