Sporobolus heterolepis

Prairie Dropseed

Prairie Dropseed is a green clumping grass with airy delicate panicles held high above the foliage. The fall color is a wonderful orange, changing to cream in winter. It is extremely tolerant of dry sites, and it has a wonderful flowery fragrance to boot when planted in mass.  An important seed source for winter birds.

PRN Preferred:  What other grass combines beautiful airy seed panicles, showy fall color and great fragrance?
