  1. crabgrass

    Digitaria is a genus of plants in the grass family native to tropical and warm temperate regions but can occur in tropical, subtropical, and cooler temperate regions as well. Common names include crabgrass, finger-grass, and fonio. They are slender monocotyledonous annual and perennial lawn, pasture, and forage plants; some are often considered lawn pests. Digitus is the Latin word for "finger", and they are distinguished by the long, finger-like inflorescences they produce.

  1. crabgrass

    Crabgrass is a type of fast-growing weeds that belongs to the Digitaria genus. These annual flowering plants are notorious for their ability to thrive in harsh conditions, typically sprouting in lawns, cultivated fields, and wasteland areas. Known for its prostrate growth habit, crabgrass spreads across the ground rapidly, with stems that radiate out from the center, resembling crab legs - hence the name "crabgrass". Its persistence and resilience make it a common problem in most lawns and a challenge to control.
