Mowing and King Ranch Bluestem Weeds

bluestem 1

Every year around this time, you may notice high grass on medians throughout the city.

The high grass is actually an invasive weed called King Ranch Bluestem that pops up from September through November. It has a very fast growth rate - it can grow as much as two feet in two weeks - and there is no easy way to control it in between mowing cycles. It will eventually stop growing once the weather gets colder.
