I have what appears to be, two types of crabgrass growing. One with thicker, longer, higher blades. Another with skinnier, shorter blades.

I have seen the "real crabgrass video", but still not able to determine if this is truly crabgrass or not.

  • @Mike Perry: Yes, it would be helpful if, as a general rule, close-ups of the plant's roots/ stem/ leaves/ flower could be provided with every identification request; very often, it is impossible to identify a plant without at least three of these. This is probably something we need to discuss on meta.. Jul 27, 2011 at 17:37
