April 11: Fraser's Sedge

Another picture from that magical springtime in the Smokies. It might not technically qualify as a wild "flower" but its still interesting. I think this plant is somewhat unusual in that it doesn't have any close relatives except for a similar plant in China. It likes to grow on steep shaded streambanks in the mountains. It gave the forest a kind of "jungle" feel with its long dark green draping leaves.
