    Can you guys ID this grassy weed. Pops up in the winter. I've searched some weed sites, but can't find this one. Is it some type of perrinial rye? It grows in clumps.

    This is just a guess, cause I'm still pretty much a rookie...but is that fescue?

    Looks like some grass, thin blade fescue or rye. Too small a picture to really tell. Definitely not crabgrass.

    I didn't look that close before, all I noticed was the stalk in the bunch, I zoomed in on it and I agree with mownredneck & cleancut, sure looks like rye.

    Winter Rye. Many lawns and golf courses in Florida are over-seeded with in the winter months. It dies off when the warm weather arrives. That looks like dormant St.Augustine around it.

    Thanks for the replies, but I can tell you that it is not crabgrass, fescue or winter rye. I know all of these grasses and it's not any of them. Tclawn, Kyllinga is one I'm not familiar with. I'll research that one. Anybody else have any idea?
