Hairy crabgrass (DIGITARIA SANGUINALIS)

The hairy crabgrass is one of the more commonly seen grasses. It is at the same time identified as a weed, even though it is usually not included among the most harmful and most expansive. Its specific characteristics are the deciding factor in this case. It develops to form rather loose tufts, 15-70 cm in height. The stalks end in blossoms that are visually similar to ears. In time, they become purple or violet, and this is why it can also be called the purple crabgrass.

The hairy crabgrass feels best in neglected gardens and fields. It has its specific soil requirements, preferring soil that has a low nutrient content, is permeable and has a low pH value. It will prefer a soil that is poor in calcium and dry. It grows primarily in very sunny areas. Treatment by a chemical product, as a method of elimination, is used if growth is intense.
