Prairie Dropseed (Sporobulus herolepis) is a fine-textured, distinctive bunchgrass with leaves that curve gracefully outward forming large, round tufts. Delicate seedheads appear above the tuft in midsummer, rising 2 ft. high. Fall color is tan-bronze. Prairie dropseed is a perennial.
Snow does not flatten the plant, so it is visible even in winter.
