This grass is approx. 3 feet long, trailing down a slope....
I'm zone 5 in Ontario, Canada
Looks like Bermuda grass.
Bermuda in Canada?? I don't know the plant personally but isn't it a warm climate grass?
I can't say whether it's Bermuda or not. The blades taper more than I'm used to.
USDA says "a few hardy strains of Bermudagrass persist in areas with sub-zero winter temperatures (USDA plant hardiness zones 5 and 6)."

The Bermuda in my lawn -- whatever variety it is -- unfortunately survived our -2* F winter (6b instead of our supposed-to-be-7a) with no visible die-back. 8-(
It isn't Bermuda, and also not Eremochloa (Centipede Grass). Both are more southern species. See if Zoysia japonica is a match. The BONAP maps do list that for Canada.
The central stem of this grass is very coarse.....I can post more pics other than this one if necessary....
I appreciate the time you folks are trying to id this grass...bugs me not knowing what it is....
A picture of the seed head would help a lot. Bermuda grass has star shaped seed heads.
I agree with bermuda grass... I hate this grass.
" Bermuda grass has star shaped seed heads."
I will take a look and report back....
Thanks for the info....
