Sporobolus heterolepis

Sporobolus heterolepis

Prairie Dropseed

The threadlike leaves of this native grass produce a fine textured 2' dense mound. Color changes from green in spring and summer to orange in fall to a creamy color in winter. Delicately scented, slender flower stalks rise above the grass in July. Slow growing, but well worth the wait. Extremely drought tolerant once established.
