What is this grass?

Richland, WA(Zone 7b)

I have some of this in my yard and love it! Recently divided and put some as borders. It grows so well! The roots are interesting- it stays green all winter here. Who can name it for me?

It is obviously a cocktail onion plant. LOL

I have no clue. Are those bulbs? Do they detach and sprout? I was trying to think what looks like that, that would colonize the roots to no avail. Nematodes?

The top does look like sedge to me, carex. Similar to Carex oshimensis ‘Evergold’.

PS
You might want to see what it all is before you spread it all over your yard. If invasive, you might rue the day.

Thanks to you both- it isn't invasive, but will dpread to make a nice border. I have it outlining some of mt flower beds- I will take photos and post. The little bumpy roots seperate easily and each one grows into a clump in time..I will keep trying to find a name for it! Stay tuned!

I found this photo with similar roots. It said nematodes on a variegated carex, I think. LOL I can't find the web page now to double check it, just the photo page. https://www.picclickimg.com/d/l400/pict/174298330449_/2-Plants-Of-Acorus-Gramineus-Variegatus-Ogon.jpg

but the page is not there when you click on it. I think it might have been a ebay listing no longer available.

Do those roots look similar to yours? I still do not know if those bulbil like growths on those roots are supposed to be there. LOL

I hope someone else wanders by to put me out of my misery. LOL

This grass has confused me a lot, but I am now cleared that fertilizers and artificial acids may harm this. I have read that bags of potatoes and other vegitables do not harm the grass' original health. https://techypes.com/best-potato-grow-bags/ . You can check and verify yourself. I am now satisfied

Martinluther, I don't understand your post- what connection is there between the grass and potato bags? I use potato bags, but they are not anywhere near the grass.

OK- Here are more photos--I downloaded a plant identifying app on my phone and didn't get an ID ! Definitly not any nematodes or other critter or disease! Very healthy roots and grass---

Also, I have eliminated Liriope (aka Mondo, Lilyturf, Aztec grass)-they all have fllowers or other growth-mine does not.

It looks like Arrhenatherum bulbosum to me.

LOL I was about to double down on my cocktail onion plant ID after seeing your photo close ups.

But I guess not. LOL Shows you what I do not know.

I DO believe that is it--however, mine only grows about 6 " tall, which is fine for me. I really appreciate all your help. everyone.

This is an advertisement, 1 of so many all over Dave's Garden. The other day I actually saw a thread started with an advertisement and then 3 other advertisers added their ads to the thread.

I have no clue why Dave's Garden allows this but I suspect like much else around here, no one in admin even notices.

Well, that's a bummer-especially since we have to pay to be members. Tomatoville is free- I wish I could figure how to get in- I even emailed the person in charge and got no action.
