Selection of the outstanding native Prairie Dropseed made by Roy Diblik for its more upright, compact, and uniform habit. The foliage will reach about 12-18" tall and the flowering stems to about 24-30" tall. In late summer to early fall airy panicles of tan-pink flowers give off a fragrance compared variously to coriander or buttered popcorn. Beautiful, fine textured foliage turns golden orange hues in fall.
Sporobolis 'Tara' creates a graceful clump for the edge of the border, in native-type plantings, or grass gardens. Drought tolerant once established.
