Mesa Dropseed

(Sporobolus flexuosus)

Mesa Dropseed is a native warm-season bunchgrass. It closely resembles Sand Dropseed and replaces that species in the southern plateaus. Mesa Dropseed grows from western Texas and southeastern Colorado to Arizona, southern Utah, and Nevada, to elevations of 915 to 1680 cm (3,000 to 5,000 ft.). It prefers sandy soil, grows mainly in areas with a mean annual precipitation of 30.5 cm (12 in.) and is valuable for soil establishment.
