Sedges and Grass-Like Weeds

Sedges are characterized as having long, slender leaf blades similar to grasses but are easily differentiated from turfgrasses due to their triangular stems. Grass-like weeds have characteristics that are similar to grasses, but are not true grass species. They also typically have showy flowers that are easily distinguishable from many turfgrass and weedy grass species.
