I've submitted these plants before (2 years ago) and was just going back to check if I could refind them. The population here seems to be doing well. I am submitting this again because I am so pleased with this photo. Lower spikelets all female, perigynia more flattened than inflated, dark scales subtending the perigynia, and uppermost spikelet with males at the base place this in Racemosae. Buxbaumi is the only species in Racemosae in Norfolk County (the others occur in northwestern Maine, and northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont).

It's one of my favorites, and perhaps the only time I'll be able to show @kaomand a population of a state-endangered species on the island that she hadn't already visited and documented. (I saw this here in 2015). Kelly holds the plant to show scale, and show how in a drought year this dramatic species can almost hide out within a sandplain grassland. This is the northeasternmost population in the United States.
