Carex maximowiczii / Gouso ゴウソ

 
Carex maximowiczii, a perennial common in paths between paddies or wetlands, 40-70cm in height, sends out short runners to make growth in-crowd. Stems are sharply 3-ridged, and the upper parts feel sandy. Leaves are 4-6cm wide, linear, the backside somewhat powdery in white. Leaves at the bases lack blades, ending up in nothing but sheath. Spikelets, 2-4 in number, with long pedicels droop down. Bloom time: May-June.
