Plant Quiz Solved - Carex frankii!

Good call, A.L., it is Carex frankii, Bristly Cattail Sedge. The perigynia bodies are strongly obconic and the awns of the pistillate scales exceed the perigynia.

This attractive sedge was on a roadside near South Bend, Indiana.

I'm going to go with Carex frankii, although I'm a bit green in the Cyperaceae world!
