Poa Annua Or Annual Bluegrass
Weed Wednesday is back! This week we want to discuss a weed we’ve been hearing a lot about. Poa Annua, or Annual Bluegrass
Poa Annua is one of the most frustrating grassy weeds in home lawns. “Poa” as it is commonly known, is technically a cool season winter annual plant. It germinates in the early fall and survives over winter. It then produces new seeds in the early spring making it one of the first weeds you see as snow melts. As daytime temperatures rise, adult plants normally die off, only to lead to a new crop as seed germinates late summer and into fall.
While this weed can be hard to control, the most helpful management practices is to build and maintain a thick lawn that doesn’t allow poa to grow.
