Identified

 

Thanks to a tip from Eliza Waters that this might be a sedge, I have found it to be so. Carex Communis, almost as memorable as its common name, Fibrous Root Sedge. It us found in eastern North America in sandy loamy soil and rock outcroppings. A perfect match. Thanks to all who dropped on to take a look at my nature trail curiosities.

Scrunched on the Nature preserve trail with my camera steadied on my pack to get a good shot, I made an amused sight. My memory recalls never seeing this wildflower before, i needed a good shot. Since… identification fails me.

Can anyone help me out? What is this wildflower growing on the floor of the Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve, Hocking Hills State Park Ohio?
