    I live in NE Texas, and have Bermuda Tifway 419.

    For the past two years, I have some perinnial weeds I CANNOT get rid of. This year I went by the BOOK on the "Scott's Annual Fertilizing Plan", but sure enough these weeds are back full throttle.

    They look very similar to dallisgrass, but its blades are thinner and bunched together (making it very dense). They are a VERY dark green. When they grow to a certain point, they sprout little stems that have feathery white blades on the top of the stems. These weeds come back in the exact same spot each year.

    I spot treated areas of it with Ortho weed killer---but nothing. I even called a lawn service out, and the guy did not know what they are.

    I know it's a longshot, but thought I would see if anyone had advice on what they are. Pulling them up is a last resort, as they are in a lot of different places.

    Nope. It looks very similar to Goosegrass--if that helps.
