Plant I.D. – some sort of Papyrus?


This was growing as a weed in one of our grasses. I’ve dug it out and want to grow it but if it’s a bad weed maybe not, otherwise interested in care etc.

Edit – while interesting it’s not with the risks of it seeding itself into my garden forever. Thanks for the help.

    If you find out what that is, let me know…saw some growing in rows of Raspberries on Sauvie Island (Oregon) this weekend.

    Sort of like Cyperus schweinitzii, but not quite?

    I think I found it! Cyperus Erythrorhizos

    It looks like the bad weed, nutsedge, sometimes called nut grass. It is a bad weed, hard to get rid of. Google it.
