Prettiest rush ever...
Originally uploaded by urtica
This is Flowering Rush - not really a rush in the true sense, as it is its own family, the Butomaceae, rather than the Juncaceae. But if you know the form that a rush takes you can see the resemblance, minus the showy pink flowers. Butomus umbellatus is an invasive species that has been on most of the state lists here in New England since the beginning, but I had never seen it before I walked by this one, part of a large patch next to Sapsucker Woods in New York.
