Poa annua L.

Common Name(s):
Annual bluegrass

Annual bluegrass, in the family Poaceae, is a winter annual, clump-forming grass with a yellow-green color, prow-shaped leaf tips and a distinctive whitish flower head. Preferring moist, shady areas, it emerges from fall through spring; flowers, and then dies with the onset of warm weather. Annual bluegrass is a prolific seed producer but is well mangaged by most preemergence herbicides labeled for use.
