Green kyllinga, also called pasture spikesedge, is a non-native perennial plant in the sedge family.
Produces a network of numerous underground stems (rhizomes) and can root and send out new leaves at each stem node. It has narrow, grass-like leaves. It is often mistaken for nutsedge but unlike nutsedge which grows upright, kyllinga spreads into dense mats and does not have underground tubers. It can handle close mowing.
Conditions that favor growth
Sunny, moist areas but can move into shadier, dry spots.
