Alkali sacaton (Sporobolus airoides) 'Delicatesse'

Sporobolus airoides is a petite warm season bunch grass.  Plants form attractive mounds of slender gray-green arching leaves. In late spring one or more culms rises above the foliage bearing airy panicles of pinkish spikelets. The florets mature into small globe shaped grains that quickly fall to the earth. This tough grass can survive seasonal flooding or prosper in harsh dry desert or prairie-like settings. Plants also thrive in sunny gardens with dry to average soils.
