By greene on Feb 14, 2018 6:42 AM, concerning plant: Stargrass (Heteranthera zosterifolia)

The image shows a sign/label for Heteranthera zosterifolia. but the larger foliage does not match that plant so the image is misleading.

I have not yet found an image that is not protected by copyright but I could take a photo at an aquarium store as this is a popular aquarium plant.

Here is a link to an image of H. zosterifolia showing the correct foliage at the Copenhagen Botanical Garden:

Doing a Google Image search omitting 'Copenhagen Botanical Garden; the result shows the H. zosterifolia:

Thank you

By ILPARW on Feb 13, 2018 2:20 PM, concerning plant: Appalachian Sedge (Carex appalachica)

I'll use comments from New Moon Nursery LLC in Bridgeton, New Jersey that grows this species. Its native range is from southeast Ontario & southern Quebec through New England down to northern Georgia, to Kentucky & Tennessee. It grows in dry or mesic forests, or clearings, or shaded rock outcrops. It starts as a clump, but will slowly spread to become a colony. It is a textural phenomenon in having such thin, fine-textured blades for shaded areas that get 12 to 18 inches long and less than 1/8th inch wide. Cut to the ground in late winter. It is deer resistant. Birds and wood turtles eat the seed. The foliage is a host plant for skipper and satyr butterfly caterpillars. It is offered by some eastern native plant nurseries.

So far, I have not seen this native sedge sold by conventional nurseries, but by native plant nurseries. Prairie Nursery in Westfield, WI sells this in 3 inch pots by mail. It does well in wet or moist soils along watercourses or bodies of water, but also does well upland. It produces spiked flowers with star-like seedheads which may continue into winter for interest. The seeds are eaten by birds and waterfowl.

By ILPARW on Feb 12, 2018 7:51 PM, concerning plant: Softstem Bulrush (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani)

Soft-stemmed Bulrush is not only native to almost all of North America, but also is world-wide. It grows in shallow water, fresh or brackish, in ponds and lakes, along watercourses, and in bogs and marshes. It makes a good mass for good erosion control; it makes good cover for birds; and it is a food for muskrats. It bears its orange-brown many-flowered spikelets in April-May. They become the scaled nutlets in drooping clusters. It is sold by some native plant nurseries for wet native landscape situations and for conservation district projects for erosion control and plant cover around bodies of water and watercourses.

By ILPARW on Feb 12, 2018 7:29 PM, concerning plant: Woolgrass (Scirpus cyperinus)

Common Woolgrass is a common plant over a large native range of all Minnesota down through eastern Texas over to central Florida up through all of New England into southeast Canada growing in wet or moist soils of swamps, marshes, ditches, moist or wet meadows, and along lakes, ponds, and various watercourses. It is a member of the Sedge Family and is a grass ally. but not a true grass. Its stems are solid and 3-angled. It begins as a clump perennial but in time it can spread to become a colony from rhizomes. It is a cool season plant. It is sold by some native plant nurseries for native plant landscapes, bog gardens, or to be used by conservation organizations to control water erosion around ponds, lakes, and watercourses. It is not sold by conventional nurseries for ornamental purposes, so far.

By Baja_Costero on Feb 12, 2018 6:06 PM, concerning plant: Sausage Plant (Euphorbia makallensis)

Mound-forming succulent Euphorbia with four-sided stems, short paired spines, and small yellow cyathia. Very similar to and easily confused with Euphorbia resinifera, a much more common plant in cultivation. Impressive in old age. From Ethiopia. Do not overwater.

By ILPARW on Feb 12, 2018 1:39 PM, concerning plant: Northern Sea Oats (Chasmanthium latifolium)

Northern Sea-Oats grows in shaded areas with fertile soils from Missouri to New Jersey and southward. It does well in full sun in gardens or part-shade or under the light shade of oaks and hickories or along woodland edges. The seedheads are held above the foliage and begin as green and ripen to tan in September-October and look sort of like shrimp. It begins as a clump but does spread some by rhizomes. I bought one plant in a pot from a native plant nursery and it has been doing well for over 10 years along the fence in part-shade. The only bad trait is that it self-sows a good amount, and the seedlings are hard to dig out in places one does not want them. It is sometimes sold by conventional nurseries also and is occasionally found in gardens and landscapes around, but not one of the big grass items. It is a pretty perennial.
