    It looks like its def a grassy weed. You can git it with glypho all you want. Just wait till the Bermuda goes dormant in the next couple months and nuke it. Only do this with Bermuda. You can always pull it id there's not much just get it before those seed heads shoot up

    Celsius+Revolver, followed by Revolver+Image 70DG. Many grassy weeds that invade bermuda in warm, humid areas are killed by that. This weed also tends to take over when the bermuda is not cut short enough.

    not sure if it's a whatsa who's it but it is a bluestem caucasian IMO

    After looking at the 4th pic and seeing ag fencing {and a baby cow laying up against the fence} gotta be soma grain ...er forage grass round yonder.
    So I figured a class of forage ID would help.

    I'm sure the farmer don't mind something green along the sidewalk because he ain't gonna water it, eh?

    "I have sprayed caucasian with Roundup only to find it outside the area of spraying and back in the sprayed area within two years, probably from seed. Paul Ohlenbusch, Extension Range and Pasture Specialist for KSU, had considerable experience with old world bluestems in Texas before moving to Kansas seventeen years ago. ...he says, "There are agricultural research centers and experiment stations who have experimented with caucasian and may never do creditable research again because of contamination of study pastures. If that isn't reason enough to avoid it, I don't know what is. Once an introduced species survives one winter and makes seed, you will have it forever."



    AKA.......... sod cutter weed

    I have it on my place, but I don't know the name. It lays flat most of the summer then the seed heads shoot up in the fall. They will grow 8" to 10" a week. It is a perennial and you will probaly have to spot spray with glyphosate.
