SOLVED: What grass is this?

Midland, WA

It grows less than a foot tall, only turns brown in summer heat, stays in a nice mound, and when I cut the stem it appears to be a grass, not a sedge or rush, and has these cool beads for a root system.

The leaves look like variegated liriope, but the roots look like a sedge.

Just looked up variegated liriope. They get purple flowers. Mine get the tan insignificant feathery seed heads.

Must be a sedge then.

But from what I read, sedges have triangular stems when I cut into this one it appeared oval like grass. My pics blurry though.
