Juncus trifidus   Three-leaved Rush

Junuxs trifidus whole Swiss Alps Junuxs trifidus close Swiss Alps

Unlike the photos from late in the season on top of Cul Mor where the very dark brown fruiting bodies are evident, this is a rush in the very early stages of flowering and so it looks very different. The habitat in Switzerland was much greener and lusher although at a greater height above sea level than on Cul Mor.
