Carex pendula

Observation - Carex pendula - UK and Ireland. Description: Large sedge which is widespread in my wood. Rush-like leaves maybe 60cms high (individual leaves much longer), with long arching flower head up to maybe 1.3m. Widely naturalised around this area despite the sandy soils - not sure if it was ever native her
