Product Description

(PLS) Sand Dropseed (Sporobolus cryptandrus) is a grass species forming a tuft of stems growing up to a meter long with a thick stem base. It grows in a wide variety of habitat types, including disturbed areas such as roadsides and is a common grass in many North American prairies. The inflorescence is dense and narrow when new and then spreads out, becoming diffuse, with some branches sticking straight out. The base of the inflorescence is often sheathed within the top leaf, which spreads out beside it. Sand Dropseed produces very abundant seeds, with an individual inflorescence capable of bearing 10,000 seeds.
