Carex congdonii

A sedge species common to talus slopes and boulder fields typically at the highest elevation all along the JMT. This is one of the most stately sedge species with its tall robust stature. The terminal spikes are often more pistillate than staminate, but this varies among populations. The woolly perigynia, bunched habit, and high elevation settings combine to distinguish this sedge.
