what kind of grass is this?

joejkdOctober 14, 2013

can someone please help me identify the grass in these pictures? I dropped some seed in this area last year and this is the only type of grass that survived. I want to add more seed to the area but it would make the most sense to use this type of grass, it seems to do well there.

I believe it is either a fine fescue or perennial ryegrass.

Looks like one of the fine fescues, which in their normal state have fine needle-like blades. It's very hardy once established, and tolerates heavy shade. In the summer it tends to go dormant and off color, but will return to it's normal color and texture in the fall.

That is poa trivialis aka rough stalk bluegrass. Note note the onion skin like leaf sheath. Rough bluegrass is in a lot of shade mixes also contaminates alot of seed mixes.Generally doesn't do well in the middle of summer when it gets hot and dry.

Most definitely NOT poa Trivialis. It's a Fescue.
