Weed ident in St. Augustine

rumpelstiltskinJuly 26, 2006


I've got a weed I am trying to identify that is growing among my St. Augustine grass. The weed never seems to grow large (like crabgrass). It is intermixed with my grass. Picture attached. I can't seem to identify it using the numerous weed galleries out there. It seems to have 'runners', like St. Augustine, and grows in patches (mixed with St. Augustine).

Thanks in advance.

I can't tell exactly from the picture but could this be Barmuda Grass that is invading your lawn? I know that Barmuda sends out runners. My neighbor has Barmuda Grass and his runners have invaded my lawn as well.

No, definitely not Bermudagrass.

For assistance with ID, take a good-sized sample to a local large independent garden center or to your county's Extension Serivce office.
