Wild Grass

There is some wild grass that I can't ID growing in the bottom of my hollow, a creek head, which is real wet about 7 or 8 months of the year. The seed heads are very attractive in my opinion - anybody know what it is and/or anything about it?

I asked a friend. He believes it's a Carex, sedge. There are so many species it would likely take an expert to know which one.

The one at the link below doesn't grow in your state, but has a similar look.

Here is a link that might be useful: Carex

If it is Carex glaucescens, it's a zone 7 plant, a southern species, so likely won't grow in colder climates.
See the map below the photo at the USDA site.
