This is a relatively new lawn weed called roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis). It is a perennial grass weed that is difficult to control. Even golf course superintendents struggle to control it on golf courses. Please see the following information on our website, http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/roughstalk-bluegrass
