This little plant is actually a sedge but the unique white top turns it into a beautiful and unique wetland plant. A similar but smaller species, Rhyncospora colorata might throw you off at first but the latifolia species is significantly larger.

Sandswamp whitetop sedge grows in wet areas and would make a great pond plant in a garden. There really not a lot to write about this one, but it is a pretty little plant that most people would over look.
