Weed in lawn

Hi All:

Anyone know what this is? They told me wild onion at a speciality turf store. I'm not so sure wanted to get second opinion.

This weed is mixed in with my fescue. It grows a little bit faster than the fescue. No smell when after I mow. I think it came in when I put kentucky 31 tall fescue seed down.

Any thoughts?

Not wild onion. It is a grass of some kind. Looks like a young plant, which makes it kind of hard to identify because there is still a lot of development left to do. However, it does look like it could be orchard grass.

Thank you beeone! I think you're right. Come spring I'll let some go to seed.

I just need to get some herbicide that kills a bunch of different grasses but fescue safe, yeah?

RE: Weed in lawn

If that "specialty" turf store identified that stem as "wild onion" that is one store I would steer clear of. Wild onion will always produce that oniony odor when clipped.

Any turf grass poison that would kill off that grass will also kill off your fescue.
