    Pendulous sedge I think, a nice plant for a wildlife area but a terrible seeder!

    Looks like Carex pendula, a bit of a thug and difficult to dig out.  A lot of it about this year.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Hello ClairieC. Its Liriope muscari or lily-turf. Possibly Monroe White.

    Thx Ladybird4. I don’t think it’s lily turf as it’s quite tall. I have some black lily turf and it seems different to that. Can it grow quite tall?

    Thanks everyone. It looks like the Carex Pendula / Pendulous Sedge.

    Liriope muscadine grows to about 30-35cm in height, a much bigger plant than the black lily turf.

    It’s definitely sedge, I have it cropping up everywhere this year. Easy to get out when young, a nightmare full grown.

    That should have read Liriope muscari not muscadine - blooming spell checker

    Agree re sedge.
    If you zoom to bottom right you can see the leaf quite clearly.

    Liriope muscari do not flower until much later in the year.
