Crab Grass

Digiraria, D. Sanfuinalis, D. Ischaemum - Crab Grass

Crab Grass is a plant known by many other names such as the scientific name Digitaria and is a genus of around 300 species of grass from the Poaceae family. It can also be called Fonio or Finger-Grass, and the most common in North America is the Large Crabgrass, or Smooth Crabgrass. It is a very invasive grass that will spread quickly and become right back even if cut short when mowed. It is a fast grower that will thrive in just about any place it grows. The North American types are often a problem weed when grown in parks or gardens. It will be prevalent in thin lawns that are under watered, under fertilized, and poorly drained. This plant is an annual in North American areas that will grow in late spring to early summer to outcompete lawn grasses which are domesticated. Each plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds per season. The growth of this plant can be controlled by proper lawn care since it is a symptom of an under treated grass. With proper lawn care including fertilization and watering, crabgrass will lose out to a healthy lawn since it is an annual. It will die out in autumn and needs open conditions to grow the following spring. So by filling the space left empty by previous crabgrass with a healthy lawn the crabgrass will not be able to grow the following season again. It does have a very benefit when grown in areas that have erosion is issues. Since the roots are very well established it is perfect for hillsides, even rocky or gravel ones with poor nutrition to prevent erosion. Climate Zone: 2 to 11 Mature Height: Variable Mature Width: Variable Sunlight: Partially Shaded to Full Sun Ships As: Bareroot
