Kyllinga gracillima (weed) L. - (false-green kyllinga)
This species of sedge is believed to be native to Asia. It has become weedy in parts of North America, where it is mainly a problem in turfgrasses like bermudagrass or creeping bentgrass. K. gracillima is resistant to low mowing heights and can form dense mats that expand through underground rhizomes. It also spreads through seeds being transported by agricultural equipment, clothing or animals. The ball-shaped seed head is surrounded by 3 leaves.
