Identify this grass variety

Posted by Jim213 none (My Page) on

Hello Gardeners
I have a variety of grass that grows near our cottage - just north of Toronto Ontario - see attached picture.
It seems to grow wild/naturally in the area.
It grows to about 4 - 6 inches, it is soft under foot, and quite hardy.
It has a wiry leaf (i.e. not a broad flat leaf).
I would like to grow more of it - if I could find a way to propagate its expansion.
Q1: Can anyone identify this grass?
Q2: Can you tell me how to buy seed (or to encourage it to expand naturally)?

RE: Identify this grass variety

Did you ever get an answer on this one? It appears to be some sort of wild sedge - carex family.
