Carex vesicaria

These photos show several of the diagnostic features of this species of wet peatlands; the long utricles (fruits) which have a long, bifid beak; the long stalk of the lower spike; the plicate leaf; the membraneous ligule where the leaf meets the stem. Several species in the section Vesicariae are reported as hybridising and so there is often some variability.
