Dry to moist sandy plains, ridges, shores, and open forests.

Our plants have a distinctive form that is quite different in aspect from L. intermedia and L. stricta; it gives the first impression of a delicate Panicum. The longest slender spreading branches are usually 5–9 cm long, while in L. intermedia and L. stricta the branches are more ascending and usually (though not always) less than 5 cm long.
