All these are a foot or taller. With everyones guesses and a little more research, I found a few things.

Still at lunch on #1. I didn't check the grass it's self, the plant has anywhere from 4 to 7 of these seedheads and that is all. No leaves on the stem or skyward, all leaves are close to ground and the seed stalks are over a foot tall. Only a few of these I can find, no where near as common as everything else pictured. To me that means pull it.

Neat site here

I dont know if 2 is bluegrass or not. Looks like it but most bg seedheads, in a lawn anyways, are only 2 or 3 inches tall. The #2 in the pic is a foot or better in the field. Maybe a big bg or just really healthy?

4 is tall fescue.

I think 3 & 5 are both orchard. Immature and mature

Thanks for the pointers an motivation everyone.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I am NOT a grass expert - but I do know that the same plant can behave very differently under mowing pressure, or lack therof. As such, I would not be the least bit surprised to find bluegrass in a field growing much taller than bluegrass in a lawn.

Heck, I can get that much variation in the same dandelion plant just by mowing it a couple of times. More desirable plants like clover as well. I've been fighting parts of the orchard I "lost" the last year or two back into shape this spring...

Good call on 3 and 5. I sure didn't consider the "immature" stage of orchardgrass. True to form...........looks just like immature orchardgrass. I"m still calling #4 ryegrass.....based upon the photo we're looking at. Sure enjoyed the puzzle.
