Carex Baccans--Berry Sedge--Crimson-Seeded Sedge

It is obvious why this is called Berry Sedge; it is a sedge whose seeds look like berries. So pretty, it is sometimes used in bouquets. Apparently this is not common in cultivation, although it is supposed to be hardy. It likes partial to full sun and moist soil. This specimen is right next to the Japanese pool at the UC Botanical Garden.
