A green edge

Native basket made of sedge rhizomeSedge is not grass. Sedges have edges. The Greek named the genus ‘carex’ meaning ‘cut’. There’s 2,000 species. [pdf]

Like grass, sedge will both seed and clone with underground rhizomes, the longer used to craft baskets.

Clusters of sedge protect mammals and birds, especially in summer when less durable grasses fall.
