I am wondering if this is a 4-5-foot-tall grass that colors up around this time of year or a little later, earning its common name of flame grass? There should be creamy tassel-like flowerheads about now as well. Reason I am asking is because clumps of this plant should get larger and larger (and are no picnic to dig out), but the way you describe what’s going on in your beds it sounds like a non-clumping grass, something that just runs and runs in every direction. So tell us more – the size, the habit, etc. I tried to find a photo to see if that helps ID it: http://perennialresource.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=plants.plantDetail&plant_id=936
