''Eriophorum angustifolium'', commonly known as common cottongrass or common cottonsedge, is a species of sedge in the plant genus ''Eriophorum'' of the family Cyperaceae. Native to North America, North Asia, and Northern Europe, it is often found on peat or acidic soils, in open wetland, heath or moorland. It begins to flower in April or May and, after fertilisation in early summer, the small, unremarkable brown and green flowers develop distinctive white bristle-like seed-heads that resemble tufts.. more
