Prairie Dropseed: An All-Purpose Prairie Plant

Prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) is a prairie plant native to North America that will add softness to any home garden, especially around a border. Other suitable planting areas include rock gardens, prairies and pastures, and along roadsides. It has a low, fountain-like appearance, with leaves that fall gracefully towards the ground. Plains Indians used the seeds to make flour and birds seek the seeds as food.
