identify a grass
We were at the MN Landscape Arboretum and had lunch in the picnic area and saw a green native (we think) grass about 8" tall with single 1-inch high head-type tassle. The tassle was tannish and fairly compact and upright. Single tassle per stem. We've searched and searched and cannot find anything like it. We're wondering if it's a kind of weed. If you could help us identify, we'd appreciate it! Thank you.
Identification of grasses is difficult for even the seasoned professionals. More identification help is available at our turfgrass identification web page at: http://www.agry.purdue.edu/turf/tool/index.html.
We would need a photo to even start, however, the Arboretum may be able to help
On a walk in my neighborhood yesterday I saw the same plant and now have a photo. It appears to be a weed, perhaps crab grass?
