Orchardgrass is a competitive perennial grassy weed of cool-season turf. It has a very well developed fibrous root system and can be difficult to remove once established. Orchardgrass has a very compressed sheath and a distinctive blue-green color. Orchardgrass can tolerate routine mowing and will often grow at a rate of two-to-three times the rate of the desired turf.
