Ficinea nodosa was formally known as Isolepsis nodosa and is commonly called 'Knobby Club Rush' - after the knobby looking seed head. It is an upright to gently weeping sedge with evergreen deep green cylindrical foliage. It is ideal for coastal gardening as it can take full coastal exposure. It makes a great contrast plant for other foliage grasses. Although native to the coastal zone, it can be used in protected inland climates if it gets protection from heavy frost. It may yellow a little in cold inland winters but will green up again in spring.
