Sand Dropseed
Sporobolus cryptandrus
A perennial, warm-season grass that grows to a height of 1 to 2 feet in rather small turfs or bunches. It reproduced from small seeds and tllers. Seedheads appear about September. Sand Dropseed is commonly found on sandy, rocky and silty soild in all areas of Texas except the Piney Woods. It is most abundant in the Southern Great Plains states of Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and Colorado. It moves in quickly on undisturbed areas. The grains were consumed by Native Americans.
