this is growing outside the kitchen in a container, i dont remember planting it lol, looks like rushes.




I think it's a weed Irish, sorry. There was a clump of it in my friend's garden and I tried to get rid of it for her a few weeks ago. It was quite tough to dig up.
It probably came to your garden via some bird or something. I'd evict it a s a p before it spreads.

it usually grows near water - It grows on the stream bank where I planted recently, but I have left it in as it adds a bit of interest and the roots, being strong, are helping to bind the bank together. In a pot? Probably a nuisance. I'd agree with Blodyn - remove it!
