    This stuff is not Kentucky 31. It only get to about a foot high and look tough. It's on I-20 out of Columbia and up I-95, Now it is being sown in the home areas. I expect to see it migrate to the lawns. Most cool season grasses can be controlled with Image and Simazine for the summer. Anyway just planning ahead. What about that Bahalia?
    Thanks,
    Roy
