Grass - I feel the item on the left side of photo, should be a grass. It reminds me of loose neck goose strife. So what is the plant with diminutive white bottle brush on top of long stems. I appreciate in advance your reply. Tks.

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 7 Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives
Sedge(Carex spp)Sedges feature grasslike leaves and grow in clumps, and are noted for their wide range of growing requirements. Sedges, depending upon their variety, come in many sizes and textures, and grow in a number of different kinds of soils and in virtually every USDA hardiness zone. You can leave sedge unmowed for a taller, more meadow-like look, or mow it a few times a year to maintain more of a lawn look. Sedge can handle light foot traffic and is native to nearly every state in the U.S., depending on the variety.Growing tips: Mow your sedge lawn in the spring to remove any winter burn, and let the seeds drop after they have finished flowering to allow for the sedge to fill in more thickly. Plant it in spring or fall, or even in the winter in a very warm climate.
Falon Land Studio LLC added this to How to Switch to an Organic Landscape Plan
There are mixes of grasses called “no mow” and “low mow” that combine several species of grasses that perform and look great on an infrequent mowing schedule. You also have the option of completely reworking your lawn into a short-grass meadow of sedges (the Carex genus of grasses). Carex grasses that are native to your region can be densely planted and allowed to grow long to provide a very nice natural look. This type of alternative lawn has been growing in popularity as more gardeners are discovering the beauty of long grasses.

Mowing has a huge impact on the health of an organic lawn. Setting your mower to a higher height that allows the grass to grow longer will actually help shade out some weeds. You also have the option of completely reworking your lawn into a short-grass meadow of sedges (the Carex genus of grasses). Carex grasses that are native to your region can be densely planted and allowed to grow long to provide a very nice natural look. This type of alternative lawn has been growing in popularity as more gardeners are discovering the beauty of long grasses.

Sedges, depending upon their variety, come in many sizes and textures, and grow in a number of different kinds of soils and in virtually every USDA hardiness zone. You can leave sedge unmowed for a taller, more meadow-like look, or mow it a few times a year to maintain more of a lawn look. Sedge can handle light foot traffic and is native to nearly every state in the U.S., depending on the variety. Growing tips: Mow your sedge lawn in the spring to remove any winter burn, and let the seeds drop after they have finished flowering to allow for the sedge to fill in more thickly. Plant it in spring or fall, or even in the winter in a very warm climate.
