What Is Dallisgrass?
Look in the Right Place
Dallisgrass favors damp or marshy parts of land that has been developed or worked by humans. You'll find it frequently in areas of lawns and pastures that have sufficient moisture, or even along golf courses where the conditions are right. Dallisgrass weeds enjoy full sunlight.
Dallisgrass weeds are most common across the Southern half of the United States. This tall perennial loves the humidity of these lower, warmer areas and doesn't take to higher elevations as readily.
Look at the Right Time
Dallisgrass plants spread by the production of many seeds at a time. If you know when these seeds will germinate, you can try to get a jump on this stubborn weed. As mentioned, dallisgrass thrives in warmer weather. Dallisgrass seeds will begin to germinate in late spring and summer when soil temperatures hit the 60 degree mark. Look for new clumps of dallisgrass to appear soon after.
