    It has a look of papyrus about it Mary - Cyperus, but I'm no expert on that. image

    I didn't think any of those were hardy in the UK though.

    Do you have a pic of the whole plant?

    hi fairygirl......I can't upload another picture.  There are several strappy leaves at the bottom of the plant.  I looked up sedges and I think it may be one of them.  The stem is not round but kind of triangular.....if that makes sense.

    I was given them as seeds last year and this is one of several.  Not sure now if I should use them in the garden.  What do you think?

    Cyperus eragrostis is more or less hardy and seeds around to keep itself going.

    It is a Cyperus, it won't be a problem plant

    Nut to the rescue!  image

    That's interesting nut - I didn't think any of them were hardy at all.

    they seeded around here for years Fairy, finally disappearing over a very hard winter. But I've started some more now, in their second year
