"Poa annua", or annual meadow grass, is a widespread low-growing plant in temperate climates. It is a common weed of cultivation. It occurs as a common constituent of lawns, where it is also often treated as a weed. However, it is sometimes the most suitable lawn grass for many sites, and can form most of the entire grass sward in some lawns.

Many golf putting greens, including the famously fast Oakmont Country Club greens, are Poa Annua [ [http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07164/793591-382.stm Oakmont-inspired Stimpmeter allows USGA to accurately measure speed, consistency of putting surfaces ] ] , although many courses have converted to bentgrass.
