Paspalum urvillei is a perennial graminoid species.
P. urvillei occurs mainly in moist sandy soil, but can be found in sandy loam, wet marshy areas, alluvial outwash, sand in shallow water, calcareous talus, wet peaty soil, white sand, and dry loamy clay.  It can occur in native communities, including pine flatwoods, thickets, marshy clearings in floodplain forests, and river bluffs, as well as bordering swamps, springs, and ponds.  However, it also occurs in disturbed areas, including roadsides, power line corridors, ditches, waste ground areas, vacant lots, cultivated ground, old fields, spoil banks, and construction sites. 
Flowering and fruiting has been observed in January, as well as in April through December.
