Japanese stiltgrass is an invasive summer annual weed commonly found in shady, moist areas, and is spreading rapidly in woodlands as well as shaded landscapes and low maintenance turf. As a summer annual, reproduction is by seed that germinate in early to mid-spring (mid to late-March in Western North Carolina) and sporadically throughout the growing season. Plants flower in early to mid-autumn. This weed is prevalent in Henderson County where this grass can be found invading flowerbeds, turfgrass and woodlands.
