Which is Latin for I’m having a senior moment, which I was…..
This says something about something but I’m not sure what exactly. Anyhow, first time I’ve run across a plant and I could remember its Latin (scientific) name, Carex bullata, but not its common name, Button Sedge, which I had to look up. Perhaps I am spending too much time with the weeds????????
Button sedge is mainly a species of acidic bogs and meadows along the coastal plain. It is listed as endangered in New Hampshire.
