Sporobolus heterolepsis

Prairie Dropseed

This native prairie grass is a graceful fountain of fine textured, emerald green leaves growing 2-3' in height. The abundant seed heads form a mist-like veil over the leaf blades beginning in late summer, and it has a beautiful golden orange fall color. Considered by many to be the most handsome of the prairie grasses, it makes a well-defined and distinctive border.
