S. corrugata is an annual graminoid of the Poaceae family native to North America.
S. corrugata proliferates in pinelands and disturbed areas. Specimens have been collected from open pineland, coastal hammocks, roadsides, banks of holding ponds, wooded old dune, sandy hardwood clearing, mixed forest, oak woods, longleaf pine sand ridge, wiregrass savanna, bluff by river, mangrove swamp, and open field.
This species is thought to be dispersed by wind.
