Notes:

A combination of a grass-like plant and weed that invades my lawn and pine straw beds; it is has a growth pattern that is short, produces seeds, and spreads quickly; it is quite the nuisance in trying to get rid of it. Want to identify it so I can try and eradicate it from my lawn and plant beds.

    Thank you so much! Your identification of my problem ‘grass’ looks right on the money, and unfortunately, it has hard to control as stated from the link! So, will follow the plan to live with it until the fall, and then get rid of it, as part of my regular reseeding effort. Thanks a bunch for your help!

    Details are not close enough to tell for certain. I’m guessing maybe some thing in the Poa, perhaps annual blue grass (Poa annua)? Copy & paste for the included link below for diagnostic keys for P. annua. Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
