    This weed was dormant in some hauled in topsoil that was used in a renovation. It is lighter color than the rest of the KBG and fine fescues and much faster growing. Looks a lot like a nutsedge but the stem is flat instead of triangular (has 2 sides instead of 3)

    Looks like Johnson grass to me since it has the purple bottom, but I do not know if you have Johnson grass in the North.

    Know of a product sold at Lesco that can be used to control Johnsongrass in cool season turf?

    As per weeds go I have one I would like to know what it was?

    Was because I no longer have it but never seen one like it before and thank god its gone :drinkup:

    Being I no longer have it I have no pic but can describe it with seedlings on the ends of these runners that when touched would pop off and fly in every direction like popcorn?

    The seed I would have to describe as thin like reg grass seed but twice as long.

    Kirk1701, check this site here, and see if you see anything familiar; maybe an oxalis.

    Sorry, I didn't view the page and now see it is in the UK. Look up seed dispersal and choose a local site.

    I'm betting it's foxtail.
