    The one in my yard certainly looks like the photo from cedarcreek.umn.edu. I think that does it. There’s foxtail, millet,and witch grass all growing happily together and I didn’t have to turn a spade to get them to grow. Thanks to all who contributed!

    Link to information for the fall panic grass (P. dichotomiflorum) species. https://ipm.missouri.edu/IPCM/2011/9/Weed-of-the-Month-Fall-Panicum/

    This is an excellent photo Michael! Bobby, I was hoping for your input, because I’m no expert of the grass family, thank you! Beside the genus Dichanthelium. What do you think of the Panicum genus? According to sources, some of the species with a similar appearances i.e. the witch grass (Panicum capillare) & the fall panic grass (P. dichotomiflorum) are present in WA. Again I’m no expert and only speculating. Check these out and see if you have a match. Best wishes Michael! http://cedarcreek.umn.edu/herbie/pages/109.html

    Looks like a variety of grass in the genus dichanthelium. An example would be deer tongue grass.
