Yep and a real seed weed, so remove asap.

Indeed another one to exterminate with extreme prejudice

I wanted one for ages and finally planted one 3 years ago. I love it for its graceful form and hanging seedheads and didn't know that it's a thug! Hasn't self-seeded yet but will keep an eye out. Still love it!

Yep, a sedge.

Thuggish is the correct term.

If you have room for it and are prepared to let it GO, then fine... Otherwise burn the brute! :)
