Japanese stiltgrass in an invasive annual grass with thin, pale green, lance-shaped leaves that are 3 inches long. The midvein of the leaf is off-center and has a distinct silvery stripe of reflective hairs. Each plant produces hundreds of small, yellow-to-red seeds that can remain viable for five years.
