Scirpus pendulus B. S. Walters

Borders and clearings in swamps, roadsides and ditches, shores; apparently a species which thrives in clearings and along moist disturbed roadsides. Rather easily recognized at a distance by the yellow-green foliage and very lax inflorescence with the pedicels drooping at maturity.

The Keweenaw County record is somewhat out of range. It is an 1890 collection by Farwell, but there appears to be nothing suspicious about the data. Perhaps it was a short-lived introduction.
