Post #9411575

This is growing in a flower bed in S. Texas and presumed to be planted and not a wild, native plant. Leaves are approx. 6-8" long. In summer the blooms are small and purple. Sorry, I don't have a lot more info since this was provided by a family member living down there. This picture was taken this past Christmas. The picture is a composite of three shots.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Looks like Cyperus?

I concur on Cyperus, likely C. textilis. It does not have purple flowers, however.

The relative indicated it had tiny purple flowers, but I will double-check and be sure they weren't confusing this with another plant. Certainly looks like Cyperus...thanks all.
