    I never see any seed heads....
    If it is underground, how does it get to isolated places?

    rhizomes...

    is is present in the soil and when disturbed and the rhizomes get close enough to the surface then it begins to grow....

    also globe sedge, etc will seed...

    Like wildfire!

    I hate that stuff, we've seen ALOT of it here in south eastern Virginia over the last few seasons. Hopefully, all the Manage I've sprayed these past few seasons has eradicated it all.

    green pastures... it's still there. just the remaining parts may be too deep to grow.

    just till up the soil and see what happens....
