Common Name(s): Florida dropseed
‘’Sporobolus floridanus’’ is a monoecious perennial graminoid. 
S. floridanus is found in wet savannas,, seepage bogs, and titi/cypress swamps and is abundant in wet pine savannas. In north Florida mesic flatwoods S. floridanus occurred in 53% of plots with a mean coverage of 0.0613 m-2 and was the sole herbaceous indicator species this community type.
This species is thought to be dispersed by gravity. 
In Georgia, the percent cover of S. floridanus increased from 0.4% after one growing season following a burn to 1.0% after 8 growing seasons.
