This plant is one of the most common and invasive weeds. Crabgrass is a warm-season annual that can wreak havoc on thin, under-fertilized, and poorly drained lawns and gardens.
As the stems get larger, they lie on the ground and begin to grow in a star pattern. This pattern is a common way to identify the plant. They produce seeds from mid-summer to the fall and die at the first frost. To rid your lawn of crabgrass use pre-emergent herbicides to kill the crabgrass seeds.
