Deer\'s Hair Sedge
A tuft of Deer's Hair Sedge (a.k.a Deer-Grass, tufted bulrush, tufted club-rush, Scirpus Caespitosus; sometimes also called Trichophorum caespitosum or Baeothryon caespitosum) along Crawford path, turning yellow for autumn.

Sedges are not grasses, though they resemble them.
Most sedges (family Cyperaceae) prefer very damp soil, but deer's hair sedge is one of the dominant plant species in the alpine zone, where there is very little soil of any kind.

September 2006.
