I have a small grassy weed starting in my bermuda grass lawn that worries me. It looks like tiny dark green star bursts of dark green. A few have spring up in my flower bed and I have dug up several inches of soil below them just in case they have a nut like sedge. Any ideas?

It is only about an inch or so tall at the moment. I don't know if they will get taller.

Looks to me, like nut grass, nut sledge.
I've used Monterey product on it. Brushed straight, concentrate round-up on it.
To no avail ! Over 20 years ! I still, have it !
Make a wood frame, with a screen on bottom, to sift seeds out.
Or just keep spraying with 5 percent white vinegar, its a contact weed killer.
There are newer nut grass killers out there, butt ? Shrug! ? I have no faith in them.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

It does look like a type of Sedge. My first thought was maybe Yellow Nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus) but upon closer look, it doesn't seem right for that one to my eyes.

I wonder if it might be Sedge (Carex blanda) which is also found in Arkansas. We don't have any photos in our database but check out this photo from the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service website: https://www.uaex.edu/yard-gard...
