Setaria leucopila, commonly known as streambed bristlegrass[2] or plains bristlegrass,[3] is a perennial prairie grass that is native to the southern plains of the United States. It reaches a height of 4 to 39 in (10 to 99 cm). Although good forage for livestock, it is only fair for wildlife use. It reproduces by seeds and tillers.
