When I purchased my house I had some zoysia grass and wanted it to spread. I thought the plugs were growing, but it looked different. I am finally realizing that what I thought was my zoysia is almost certainly nutsedge. Can you pls confirm if it is nutsedge and if so what type? Thanks.

    I have started another thread called “Is it Nutsedge II” I am now almost positive that it is the zoysia I planted. My confusion stems from the fact that it looks so different from zoysia that I had in my yard when I purchased the home. After posting this thread, I did more research and realized what I thought was zoysia in my yard was actually centipede. I just thought that some examples on line of nutsedge had blades that looked similar to this and so I was a bit panicked. Thanks for your assistance.
