Ms. Maudie's nut grass symbolizes rumors and gossips. You know how Ms. Maudie kind of despises Ms. Crawford for spreading rumors and gossips and Boo Radley, it is just as the same as those nut grass in Ms. Maudie's garden/yard. So Ms. Maudie cuts those fast-spreading grass to stop further spreading.

In summary, those nut grass symbolizes rumors and gossips, and that it will keep spreading unless someones stops it (cut it).

What is the illustration of miss Maudie’s nut grass in how to kill a mocking bird
