Yellow Nutsedge?

This is in dormant bermuda.

I am trying to figure out if I have two types of nutsedge, I will post the second picture in the next message.

Notice how spread out the leaves are.

This is possibly a different Nutsedge? It is the only one in the front lawn, I noticed how tight all of the leaves were versus all of the other spread out patches. (see above pictures)

RE: Yellow Nutsedge?

Too early for nutsedge in most of Zone 8. Might be Poa annua or Rye.

RE: Yellow Nutsedge?

Does Poa annua or rye die off as it gets warmer?

Also, these are very thick blades. If rye is what I think it is, similar blade width as other common grasses, I don't think this is rye.

RE: Yellow Nutsedge?

ACtually this may help.

The first two photos were of growth that had a relatively broad blade.

Here is a picture of another patch of the lawn which has much narrower blades. I am assuming given all areas of the lawn have had equal growth conditions, this patch is something different than the above pictures.

Could this be Rye?

Does Poa annua or rye die"

Yes, both will die once temp's are consistently above 90F.
