Baumea rubiginosa

At the left of this photo you see some parts of a dried specimen: the top of a culm carrying the seeds and on the right, part of the root system showing a new shoot emerging from the short stout rhizome.

This is a common sedge at Tumbi Wetlands, growing up to a metre tall, with leaves being taller than the seed-bearing culms.

It is found in all Australian states specially, near the coast.
