Description
Closeup image of Prairie dropseed, after the rain.

The Prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) is a species of prairie grass native to a widespread area of the US, from the Mid-West to the eastern seaboard. Taking up to five years to mature from seed, the adult dropseed can range from 1-4 feet tall and can survive over multiple growing seasons, as it is a perennial plant. They favor moist to drier soils, however, it is drought-resistant but is not found in wetlands. The leaves range in color from a rich green hue in summer to a golden rust complexion in the fall. The grass is favored by decorative landscapers because of its tendency to grow in bunches. The seedhead is sometimes described as having the vague scent of fresh popcorn, cilantro, or sunflower seeds.
