Re: Amer. Gardener/nutgrass


This is the nutgrass here in Texas, Pam, Cyperus esculentus.  It is called 
Yellow nut sedge here.  There is also a Purple nut sedge, Cyperus rotundus.   
Both form tubers that are edible, but not sure how.....raw, cooked, etc.  They 
are distinguished by the color of the flower heads, if that is what you want to 
call it.  
There are a number of other nut sedges that are problems in lawns, but to my 
knowledge these do not have that tuber.  Most of the most common nutgrass or 
nut sedge seen in Tx. turf and gardens are the two mentioned above.
