Tufted Lovegrass Weed Killer

Eragrostis pectinacea Herbicide

Description of Lovegrass, Tufted (Eragrostis pectinacea):
This grass is a summer annual consisting of a sprawling tuft of flowering culms with alternate leaves. Each culm is usually branched toward its base, but becomes unbranched above. The slender culms are light green or purple, glabrous, terete. The panicle is airy in appearance and narrowly pyramidal in shape. Along the central axis (rachis) of the inflorescence, there are several lateral branches that are ascending. The preference is full sun, dry conditions, and a barren soil containing sand, gravel, or clay. This grass has a C4 photosynthetic metabolism, enabling it to tolerate periods of hot dry weather.
