Muhlenbergia schreberi

Nimblewill is a weak perennial grass which is a pest in lawns. It has a weak stem and is usually prostrate. The leaves in spring are different from the mature seed leaves. It was somewhat difficult to find in the '70s but has become much more prevalent in later years. No selective control available in lawns.
