Summer Grass is a common weed in Australia’s lawns and gardens, as well as, invading bushland in many regions. It is a very fast growing weed which sends out its shoots in all directions from it’s centre.
It spreads through it’s stolons, and its stems can be brown or red in colour, with thin grey-green leaves, and fine spiky seed heads that shoot upwards. A prolific seeder, Summer Grass should be removed from lawns when first noticed.
