(PLS) Prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) is a species of perennial 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. Favors moist to drier soils, however, it is drought-resistant but is not found in wetlands. Its long luscious green leaves grow in bunches around a circular base and are no more than 1/8th of an inch wide. The leaves range in color from a rich green hue in summer to a golden rust complexion in the fall. From late July to mid-September, the grass blooms with rusty-tan flowers. 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.
