Prairie Dropseed

Prairie Dropseed
Sporobolus heterolepsis
Foliage is 24" to 30" long but arches for form a mound only 12" to 18" tall.
Flower and seed are airy and 24" to 30" tall on a thin stiff stem.
Grown as a monoculture, it makes a good lawn supstitute, but needs paths through it, because each plant forms a tussock so it is a bit difficult to walk through.
Also called Northern Dropseed
