This green mystery sprout is popping up in an all Burmuda Lawn. It started growing in early march.

    This appears to be Fescue Grass.

    This looks like poa annua. Compare with this link
    The white seed head would be one key to it’s identification. Those seed heads seem to be present in your picture.
    The absence of other weeds would lead me to believe that you have used fall preemergents. That’s good. Without preemergents your bermuda lawn could have potentially been a carpet of poa by this date!

    I have no idea what it is – but would like to know! I have them in my yard/garden as well!
