Annual bluegrass is an extremely common winter annual weed in warm and cool regions of the world. It produces unsightly seedheads in mowed or un-mowed areas, and unlike many other weeds it can tolerate very low mowing heights in lawns. Like all bluegrasses, it has a characteristic boat-shaped tip at the end of its leaves.
