Description:

No idea on this one! Do the white fluffy bits and the brown spikes belong to the same species of plant?

I think they are both sedges

Brown spikes on the right C. sylvatica which has not yet flowered.

White fluffy spikes C. divulsa or similar.

Thanks

I've certainly seen Carex sylvatica in the same wood. I do find sedges difficult, they look so different at each stage of development.
