Description

Very common in Sonoma county, everywhere it's damp. I've seen it clog drainage ditches, for example.

Met a man selling a natural beverage made from some sort of small tubers harvested from far eastern paddy-plantations of these or a very similar appearing plant. He had a pitcher of the stuff, it looked like the sweet rice drink that you can find in the better mexican restaurants.

I believe it is one of the non-native species but I am not certain. Some species of Cyperus are very serious agriculural weeds.
