whitetop sedge, Rhynchospora colorata

Most plants in the sedge family are wind pollinated. They are green. This one has apparently adapted for bee pollination. It is a tall southern plant that you can hardly miss. It loves roadside ditches. Whitetop grows in AL, AR(E), FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, SC, TX, VA, and the Caribbean. 7/8/18, Taylor Co FL.
