SS-AGR-342: Wright's Nutrush: An Invader of Seasonal Wetlands in Florida

Figure 12. The strongly three-sided stems of Wright's nutrush are typical for a sedge species. The width of each side, however, is exceptionally broad [up to 2.5 cm (1.5 in) across], which makes for an extremely robust plant that is tolerant of wet as well as dry conditions during the summertime growth period.
