    I wasn't sure where to post this on Lawnsite since to some this stuff is grass and to some it's a weed.

    By common names it is known as Annual Bluegrass or Annual Meadow Grass for those not familiar with the Poa Annua term.

    Anyways, in my case this stuff is a weed. The reason being is this is a short variation of it that seems to be exhibiting seed head early in the year at a pretty short height. And boy oh boy is it showing off seedhead!!! It is so much to the point that it just looks like a big patch of white in contrast to the beautiful green tall fescue it is in.

    I don't mow close enough to remove the seedhead at each cutting. So I hate this **** and I want it gone now!!!!

    :angry: :help:

    What about Poa pratensis? Rough Bluegrass... I just picked up some soil sample kits today and it lists Poa annua on there, but not Poa pratensis.

    Is there any way you could post some pictures. I think I know what it looks like but I would like to be sure in case I ever have a problem with it.

    Thanks David :)
