What is this grass?

Asked June 30, 2015, 5:16 PM EDT

I have this grass growing. I don't mind it, but i would like to know what it is. I tried to photo the center where maybe seeds are forming or something. Is it native? Invasive? Thank you!

This is yellow nutsedge. It is a weed and will spread. It is hard to control, since it grows from tiny bulblets which often stay in the ground when pulled. Don't let it make seed. Here is a page about it: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/yellow-nutsedge
A product called Sedgehammer is effective as a last resort.

Thanks! I will try to get rid of it. I appreciate the help.
