Carex digitata   Fingered Sedge RR DD N

Carex digitata

This is a woodland sedge which we found on the edge of a path through the trees. The fingers on this particular specimen were a bit bent bit some of the plants had two or three spikes of mature utricles which give it the name "Fingered Sedge".

Records for this sedge are dotted around northern England and its stronghold is around the River Severn: Bristol, Gloucester area and nearby Wales. It is not found in Scotland or Ireland.
