    i showed the same pictures to a few guys at a car show and they do not see any purple in those pictures. that was on my camera. so maybe the camera or the monitor is showing the grass in the wrong colors.

    thanks bp.

    That picture changed nothing. The plant is too small and not mature. I am still calling it crabgrass.

    No such things as a pre-emergent for September. It would be a post-emergent at this point. Crabgrass will not respond to a post-emergent. You will have to put up with it this year and start with a pre-emergent early spring.

    Re: what kind of grass is this?

    thanks but that grass is full grown. here is some pictures of some grass in a different place that is larger than what i'm talking about. the grass in question is full grown and just spreading. now it may be a form of crabgrass or some other kind of grass, that is why i'm asking. but look at the pictures the 1st 3 are the larger plant and the 2nd 3 are from a section in that area and the plant size is way smaller. thanks for the help though if it all is crabgrass i'm guessing i have a bumper crop this year. thanks bp.
