Name of Plant (weed?) #326776

Asked May 30, 2016, 6:01 PM EDT

My husband thinks this is a weed but I want to replant it as a plant.  I have a black thumb and so I am just excited to see something green still living around me.  Can anyone tell me if it is a weed or plant?

Limestone County Texas

Expert Response

Appears to be johnsongrass from the photo. It is a good forage plant for cattle and a good grazing grass. It is in the sorghum family.

Search images for johnson grass and you can see the seedhead and how it will grow.  In good conditions it will grow up to 5 feet tall
